Nicely done. Did you use the burl on the tail wedge also?

Yes, I used the same burl for the tail wedge and bordered it with BWB trim. The hardest and longest part of the project was brushing on numerous coats of marine spar varnish. One of these days I'll have to invest in spray equipment! Thank you all for the compliments.

Your rosette is stunning. Really like adding the abalone ring on just one side,
