Nice piece. I'd recommend against using ogee or other finely cut edges on deck though - very difficult to keep a finish on them. Simple roundovers are far more practical.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
