Many congrats sadsam. That is truly a wonderful piece of work. There is no way on earth that I will try to copy that one! I know just how much work is involved and I said never again! I am sure it will do very well in the comp. very well done indeed and good luck. Cheers. Ian

Typical just when I think I am getting good at woodwork, then I see something that brings me back down to earth, I still have lots to learn. It's my dream to produce such craftsmanship. Well done Sam that's fantastic.
