Today i made 2 stands for my japanese naturals. I found some scrap Jatoba wood (very durable wood) at work and thought it would be nice to use as stands for the stones. Not the easiest wood to work with but it was fun!

A monkey shaving his face could do that.

Real nice Magnus. Did you epoxy the stones to the base?

I'm twice as smart as a monkey and I couldn't do that.

They're beautiful, well done.

I trust all recognize the complimentary and gratuitous humor that Jeff chose to employ.

MAGNUS <> I was just thinking about you, and was ready to shoot you an email to touch base & wish you a Happy New Year. I hope all has been well. 8-) Accept this post as that, and furthermore, please accept my complimentary praise of the rustically classic yet distinguished design you bestowed upon your naturals. They are stone, and I think there is a purity to simplicity in design that complements the primal soul of the moutains heart they were harvested from. Beautiful.

There's something beautiful about the imperfect nature of the natural stones combined with the finished wood. Well done.
