    That's a great looking piece. You've certainly go an assortment of timber in it as well. Did it take long to do?

    I don't know if it's the quality of the photography or simply the unbelievable quality of the piece but I recon that's the finest intarsia I ever saw. This baby is going to be my desktop until something else beats it and expect that's going to take a while.

    Thanks for sharing this part of your life.

    Absolutely awesome Tom You've really hit it with that big fish - he looks ready to jump out of it.
