The hardest part is getting up the interest to model it. I’m not much of a fan of that style of ornamentation.

it’s a little bit ahum over-designed, there are much nicer simple ones.

Forget the Lowboy. Show me a Cowboy.

Amazing work, Dave, as always. Thanks for sharing.


Nice work. I love the way you make the grain so realistic.

Thank you. As for the wood grain textures, it helps to use images of entire boards instead of little squares that have to repeat on the surface.
