Hi LaVieestBelle, almost certainly not, unless the hue and cry is great for them (10 or more) and customers are willing to open their wallets gleefully. The weeping and gnashing of teeth involved in this project has been sufficient for me to wave the white flag of surrender. Mr. Klimek has been a joy to collaborate with (really a super guy), but technical and other challenges on the project have left me whimpering softly while crying for mama.

I'm not 100% sure that I will have a sapele block available. If I do, it will be a first-come, first serve situation. I will let you know.

Considering the intricacy of some of John's commissioned project work I've seen on his web site - that's really saying something :shock:.

They were certainly gorgeous. Had I not had tuition to pay for I would have gotten one!

Thanks, John. The color of the wood may not work as well for me as other woods, but I may be one of the group to "open their wallets gleefully" if you have the energy for another round of production.

Todd - Thanks for the compliments on the kitchen. Believe it or not, it is in an 1860s New England farmhouse! Completely re-done of course, from the studs out. And yes, the collection continues to grow; if I haven't ordered something in a few weeks from CKTG I receive a get-well card from Mark and Sue!
Again, I can't speak more highly of John and LoneStar Artisans, both the quality of the work and the fact that he is a stand-up guy who does what he says he will, even when circumstances change. Kudos to you, sir!
