11×14×1.5″ Private Collection: Not for Sale

What is perfect about this particular friend commission is that she lets me run free. This piece was a huge experiment for me with the electric sander and I am just so pleased with the way it turned out. I’ve already made three more pieces like this and have another in the works.
