These were both carved from the same rough-out and I will use the same rough-out in the future, they are of quality bass wood and shipped in a timely fashion but as always I will make efforts to design and rough cut my own. This way I can be creative in the design of the bottle toppers. Until then I will continue to buy the rough-outs. For those interested in trying your hand at carving a bottle topper go to Mark Akers page, you will be happy with the product just as I have been.
as always happy trails
