Thanks Gino. The joint in the leopard wood is so good you cannot even see it. On the accents how do you taper from three pieces down to a super fine point like you have. that is what was really giving me fits. Are all three of the accent pieces pre tapered to 0 ? If you do this kind of work its like magic when you start really examining it . thats why I'm asking. Thanks again for being so kind and generous with your knowledge and sharing it. Steve

steve- yes, they all taper to 0.... i built a .007 taper sled and feather them down to nothing.... well the inside macassar accent next to the zebra and the osage.... i leave a little meat on the outside macassar to help with clamping during glue-up.... then i feather it out just like you would a wedge.
Gun Control - A theory espoused by some monumentally stupid people; who claim to believe, against all logic and common sense, that a violent predator who ignores the laws prohibiting them from robbing, raping, kidnapping, torturing and killing their fellow human beings will obey a law telling them that they cannot own a gun.
