Another excellent piece! Your work reminds me of that by Roger Wermers - a stone mason that exhibits every year at the Scottsdale, Az Fine Art Expo. He does a lot of Native American busts.

Ronstar >> WOW! Thanks for that link.
There is a lot of talent in that lineup. I bookmark that link you shared so I can go back and look at all that beautiful art.

Thank you very much.

There is a lot of great art at that expo - and it runs every day for at least a couple of months. The artists have mini workshops set up in their booths and create their art while the public watches. And of course their works are for sale. I hope Mr. Wermers is there this year. His works must be getting heavy for a guy that is getting a little older.

I finished up my complete rebuild of our downstairs bathroom today by hanging a 3 light fixture over our vanity mirror. I replaced everything down to the studs including new plumbing, electrical, walls, insulation, ceiling, floors, toilet, sink/vanity, 36x60 shower, drains, and I custom built/stained a barn style slider entry door. I believe the house is warmer this year as a bonus.

Great job. I am so glad I made my own also. Similar to yours. I made mine tall so for standing work I don't have to lean over but I don't have the drawer on the bottom so my toes can fit under. I added a ledge board at the back so I can push stuff against it without items dropping behind it.
