This is one of the nicer bookmatched tops I have made.. Also splated and flamed beech with a tiny bit of burr in the middle

Nah, these are some of what I sell on eBay for the timber company I work with...  

Klipsch makes a speaker called a Klipschorn, or Khorn. It has a front panel about 32" wide and 48" tall, all wood. Some of the special versions have matching panels like you showed, they are exquisite. Your pic reminded me of those. Someone will do something special with those I'm sure.

Thanks...yes, it's part of an outdoor patio, there's a house behind me, they poured the decorative/stamped concrete patio a few days ago, I'll get a pic of that. I'm a mason, not all my projects are this nice, some are kind of boring.

My Aunt bought a house that already had a Portuguese oven built into a wall.  It looks a whole lot like a pizza oven.  I think it was designed for cooking meats.  Your brick work looks beautiful like that.

I have wanted a set of Klipschorns for decades, but don't want to mortgage my house for a set.

I see deals on them every so often. A lot depends on your location, deals can be had in the $2000-2500 range. Next year will be their 75th anniversary.

Today I returned to playing my weekly gigs at the sweetest coffeehouse around.   Gusto’s.  I’d been playing there every Wednesday for just over seven years when the shutdown began.   I was very surprised when I got there to find that during the shutdown one of their patrons, who is also an artist, brought them a picture he had sketched of me a few years ago during one of my gigs.  The owner had the picture framed and placed on the coffee house fireplace.  I’m very fortunate to have found this gig and they’ve always made me feel welcome.  It’s great to play somewhere and even the customers remember your name.

Fixing fence and hoping for rain. It's rained here everyday for the last 4 days,with a total rainfall at .15 of an inch. At least we're out of the 90s, and in the upper 70s for awhile. Drier than last years crows nest as dad would say.

Cooked a bunch.  Did my part to rid the world of some scotch and good soda.

I'm down for good scotch with no soda. Time to get a Basil Hayden's on the rocks and watch some British comedy.

Basil is smoooooooth.

I have a bottle of 13 YO scotch. Can't remember the name. The bottle is gone and the liquor is in my cool ceramic bottle that came filled with Tullamore Dew. Phil Lynott would be proud.

I have had a couple bottles of Basil in my life and yes, way smoooooove.  And yes, makes a dreamy Manhattan with Cocci di Torino vermouth and Peychaud.

Speaking of things to drink——-My wife and I still have two unopened bottles of cheap wine from our wedding (almost fifty years ago).  A bottle of Annie Green Springs and a bottle Boone Farm.  I think back then they cost something like $1.50 or so.  After reading a couple of the recent comments I started wondering what they taste like now.  Maybe we’ll open them in February, sniff them, then pour them down the drain....lol....

Last time I drank Boone's Farm I was at my Coast Guard's ships party in Panama on Rodman Naval Base in '96. Got lit and spilled alot if it on myself. It was red and I had a white shirt on. F-in Coasties.

First and last time I had Boone's Farm Strawberry Wine  down in Virginia Beach. First warm day of spring, weekend liberty.  Deceptively sweet, went down cool, fast and cheap.  Had to throw out  my undress white jersey.  Some of it didn't stay down.  Haven't liked wine ever since. Though, I'm not sure that was actually 'wine'.   Just like Thunderbird.   ("Not The Indian Relic") 

Best understood if you listen to Townes Van Zandt -  "Talking Thunderbird Blues"  - Live At The Old Quarter.   "Now all I drink is Communion Wine. Six days a week".

I live 45 mins from VB. It's still a dump.
