I finally got my shop remodel/expansion done and just finished cranking out these most recent axes.

Both folks wanted similar colors, but one with bling (as the customer put it...), one without.
Both are made with Engelmann from Colorado, but one is Sugar maple back and the other is Bigleaf.
One is going to the left coast, one to the right.

Austin, once again, those tops are magnificent. You've really got that Tequilla Sunrise-burst finish down!
(can't wait for the Clark JM...)
