    I've seen quite a few well done refurbishments and repairs since I came to PSF. This one has to be right up there. Congrats.

    He's done several custom pieces for me, including some turned snuff spoons. Very cool. He does some great work and highly recommended! :thu2:

    If you look anything like your avatar it must be a sight to see you smoke this baby!

    It just looks stunning and rustic at the same time in a strange way...
