I know someone for whom one of those would be the perfect gift, but I have a feeling I prolly couldn't afford one.

wsg, your feeling is probably correct. I first heard about this artist when he put on a show in L.A. two weeks ago. The least expensive pieces were in the thousands, unfortunately. Damn individual labor of love pieces of art! Warhol had it right all along!!

I love this work. I think I woke up in that bed (or one like it) once. At least I knew it was good art, when I saw it.

Wonderful woodworking skills and sense of humor — thanks! Love the desk and speakers, too.

Many other unusual stringed instruments here, including the Black Stone Violin.

Huh. Must be something wrong with me, because while I recognize the intricacy, detail, and incredible craftsmanship of this stuff... I find most of it tacky and ugly as well...

Not so much the instruments, but the furniture and other items. Those speakers are AWFUL.
