    Thanks! I will say it has been quite a while, the inlay artist had bypass surgery so that caused a big delay. Originally, quoted at 10 months but we're now at around 14 months. Regardless it will obviously be worth the wait haha. Also, the finish will be satin.

    It's a lovely build. Beautiful wood choices more than anything.

    I was interested in seeing how they glue on their tops - a great clamping idea that provides even pressure over the top with only a few bolts.

    Much appreciated, should be coming around to being finished. I'll make sure to do a thorough review on it as well.
