I don't know you. But I KNOW you are going to be thrilled. I was visiting Jim and Mary yesterday to see how my project was coming along (same batch of monkeypod...)
Saw these. These pictures are good, but in person they are one of the pairs over the years that have made me go "wow".
They say "look at me" YET they are very classy looking and timeless. One of my favorite pairs that I have seen.
Something about this batch of veneer Jim has that really, really worked on the lines of the SS 9.5. Yes, the sparkle is there also.
