You're very VERY sneaky Klaus :D;) ..how you expected anybody to tell that the "bamboo" was in fact brilliantly simulated fake bamboo from the crappy pictures you provided earlier is beyond me.. but I will accept the beer on account. That's two you owe me now.. one from before.

Nice piece. 8-)

Lol - dunno if Clive will look at a small beer as any sort of a constellation but a pint will always win Clive back round :D

Don't worry Martyn, Klaus is German.. a small beer to him will be at least a 4 pint jug... won't it Klaus? ;)

Clive... Master and friend, reading your lesson I'm able to enjoy much more my piece, and increase my admiration for the artisan (artist).....

Clive, do you think this (Chinese) wrist rest used a similar carving technique?

It looks like it Alan.. but to be sure, can you take a few close ups.. particularly of some of the design crossing a node section.

Yes, the area where the leaves cross the node section are distinctly different (more shallow) as if the bark/skin did not peel the same there or was a different thickness.

So that's a small beer in Germany. It's called a Stange rather than a Stein. Google it. When Klaus says small beer he means it lol.
