    Nicely done. You really brought out the depth of the wood.

    Very classy, I think the beauty of these woods should be utilized more. Very nice indeed.
    Mastering implies there is nothing more for you to learn of something... I prefer proficient enough to not totally screw it up.

    Classy is definitely the right word. Very nice.

    I'm a sucker for that perfectly flush wedge look. It can be tough to achieve. Good work

    I am a real OCD about the edge/scales flush fit, it depends on the finish used IMO. CA and wipe on finishes are not going to affect the flush fit. I have not used epoxy but from what I see it affects the flush fit.
