This is my second purchase from John. When I received a gift of an Etu glass dome I knew who to contact to make me a custom base for it. I chose a walnut and maple brick end grain butcher block and I absolutely LOVE it. As an added benefit for my purchase I got a discount on a maple end grain side kick cutting board that I use almost daily. Thanks to John for sharing his master craftsmen skills and creating this beautiful piece. The pair make a striking piece which I am proud to have on display in my home. It was a great pleasure doing business with him and I look forward to acquiring additional masterpieces in the future.
