    cool

  10. Jim Fortune

    Very nicely done.

  11. Michael Tricker

    That’s fantastic! Have you had any expansion problems from the hot tea pot

    things up for you.

  12. Angie Overton

    I love it!

    good work.

    I have yet to tackle veneering, Alex, and I like how you make it look so
    easy – which it probably is, like so many things you need to try so you
    know. Thanks for sharing, and for inspiring us along with Steve. Thanks for
    sharing!
