    This is so cool!! How did you finish the top/sides? Do you just round the grout around to the back of the wood?

    Yes, you can add grout to the sides, too. I glued tiny buttons along the edge but you can't see it in this photo.

    This is absolutely beautiful!!!! I am inspired........

    I love your work; always something just so very creative. Do you think this would work in the kitchen, maybe with a polyurethane finish?

    Yup, it would totally work in a kitchen.....I would probably put a sealant on it just to be safe, though. I think it depends on how wet it gets. Mine, which is by the bathroom sink isn't treated and it's been fine for over a year.

    Thanks Danger! Great to see you again.

    Nicely done! You buy that E-6000 in bulk?

    Love the stuff. It works and so I don't need to use anything else.
