This sounds/looks awesome. Where did you get it (or who gave it to you)? What's the story?
That is a two part wish.
I have a great affection for craftsman architecture and about 5 years ago I was able to go to Pasadena and tour the Gamble House. It remains one of my favorite experiences.
Now they have an in depth Details and Joinery Focus Tour which delves into the whys and hows. It's my wish to go on the tour and my second wish is that they will publish a book of the details so I can revisit.
