It's got a great two-tone colour to the wood, outside is golden, inside deep brown marrow, and 'shiny'....<img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

I wiped it down with a little white spirit, the colour and grain just jumped out! I guess the 'fertilizer' in the earth at the graveyard is pretty good!

    <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7"> The' fertilizer', i had to read it twice before understanding it.<br>That piece is awsome, sure you gonna make something unique out of it. Now i am curious and impatient to see what it will become. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27"><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_bounce.gif" alt="bounce" longdesc="27"> .
