I'm a little surprised that this piece hasn't drawn any comments yet, especially as it's such a dramatic piece. The elm is beautiful and sits really proud at the heart of this, but I find the colour a little overpowering.

Such a shame that Photobucket have their logo emblazened over your image.

I can't fault the execution on what is a beautiful piece of wood. Clap
As with Les above, I'm not 100% sure about the amount of colour - it may grow on me and it is personal taste, anyway. I've never used colour, as am further back on the learning curve (i.e. not as skillful as you!!), so don't feel too well qualified to comment, except just how it 'feels' to me.

The workmanship and finish looks superb.

Thanks for sharing
I hope you like my son's caricature of me! If you want one of you - PM me.
