I thought I would pile on: I too am a big fan of the grain and polished look. I KNOW that took a long time to sand (I hate that part also) but it sure looks worth it

I just don't know how to thank you once again Sir CC.
When I received this masterpiece, I was speechless because it was a surprise: I didn't know it would be a Marq.
What I can tell is that the pix are lying: this piece is thousand times better !
The wood grain is perfect.
I already carved a few Marqs in my life but this one is really top shelf.

Mahalos,

B.
