    Favorite Icon

    If you look at the address bar when you go to our site, in addition, you will see an icon that identifies our site. At least you used to be able to. Since I rebooted the site a few days ago, that icon no longer shows up. At least on my mac running FF. Anyone else see this?

    Favorite finish: Sapelle?

    I'm looking for input regarding favorite finishes for sapelle. I want to pop the grain a little, and accent the reds in the wood. Anyone have a preference or advice? This is my first sapelle project. This sapelle will be the rails and stiles for panels veneered in curly bubinga.
