Thanks Dan. We think itís a nice little bridge.

Wow Tom, thatís saying a lot knowing what we did on yours. Iím not sure we put this at the top of decorative themes, but our customer loves it, so itís satisfying.

Thanks Dan, glad you like the outline! I believe you'll like the bridge itself once in place.

And thanks to you as well, Tom. Working with Christie is a lot like working with you and Dennis. In that you push us out of the comfortable ruts we fall into, and make us discover new territory. It's a blast!

Is this being done for aesthetics, or do you believe the smalller bevel also is more advantageous for the sound? I think some builders feel a larger bevel takes away valuable surface area from the top.
