Click the picture to go to the gallery page for more pictures and the specs.

I did this piece to test some new techniques so it is for sale on my AVAILABLE PAGE.

Enjoy!

For any other man's,
Nor that I will be ashamed
Of my work torn hands-

For I have chosen the path I tread
Knowing it would be steep,
And I will take the joys thereof
And the consequences reap.

I was not aware of the "box knife" design and I must say that after seeing this I love the concept of such a thing! Your example is beautiful.

Thanks for all the kind words.

Dustin-
Yes, the scroll work and the bolster are cast in place and one piece(and a real pain to do)
