Reflected in a length of 6.72", a bowl height of 2.24", as well as an equatorial girth that pushes mighty close to two inches, Ernie certainly wasn't stingy with the briar in the creation of this smooth Lumberman, and, within that generosity, we find both a tantalizing profile as well as a fine visual balance, the latter usually being a scarce commodity in such a hand-filling presentation. The interaction between the broad oval of the shank and remarkable bowl could be a study, in and of itself, and the execution of the latter (look at both the heel cup to the fore and the cheeks to the aft) almost cries for a "Copenhagen" stamp. Evaluate the crossgrain and birdseye in all seven of Chris' great pics, and look for places which could use a boost. If you find one, I sure didn't spot it. Bravo, Ernie.
