Only Alan can take the straight forward paddle trick and expand it into a beautiful routine where the inlaid design is magically transferrred from the paddle to a previously blank plaque. Again, beautiful craftsmanship that always deserves a 5+ rating!
And I thought Alan could not surprise me after some great pieces in my collection, but he sure can and likely will in the future. This is simply an amazing piece of Egyptian themed mini-magic – my favorite style because of the beautiful designs and that inherent mystical quality of this subject. Pictures unfortunately never give these Warner pieces any justice.
I have already exhausted all my praises for this wonderful craftsman and I realize my reviews are getting rather too repetitive. It’s just that there is no fault that can be found with any Warner piece. So why do I continue writing them – well, simply because they are sincere “thank you!” notes for each and every piece that comes to my collection.
Well I waited over 8 months for this, but the wait was well worth it. This is one of the final pieces in the Alan Warner teak collection, at least for now. To see and touch Alan’s magic is really the only way to appreciate the time and effort he spends in every intricate detail of design and construction.
This is certainly one of his finer pieces of craftmanship and the effect is also very clean and surprising. It blends in very nicely with his other Egyptian effects.
I will miss receiving my monthly packages from you Alan, so please start thinking up some more of your wonderful magic!
