The walnut cover is three pieces. Yes, the dark shiny object is an ink drop...turned from a scrap of maple, painted black, and coated with high gloss acrylic. The end of the quill was also painted and coated with acrylic.Great idea and wonderful execution. Something your son can hand down to his children. The carved feather is a great touch. Does the feather represent a writing quill?
I'm curious about the walnut cover (back, spine and top). Is it three pieces joined together or a single large block hollowed out to fit the box that holds the drawer or ??
Finally, what is the dark shiny object at the base of the feather on top??
Thanks again for sharing.
