    Hi Terry,

    Congratulations on another beautiful build. I hope this musician will enjoy his Crystal Forest as much as I still I enjoy mine (your number 14) all these years later.

    Best wishes,

    Bob

    That's absolutely beautiful. If there's ever a sound file I'd love to hear it. I'm sure it sounds as good as it looks.
