There’s a truism to the effect of “Love is like an electric blanket, with someone else controlling the switch”. In my immediate case, some thing
is controlling the switch; this absurdly adorable J&J Billiard. While robed in the classically elegant combination of onyx and cream, and amalgam which could impart a sense of somber sophistication to a Cabbage Patch doll, this beatific Billiard remains cuter than a litter of kittens in a roomful of pipe cleaners. To my way of thinking, the execution is about as nice as it gets; there’s nothing I would do to the proportionality, save enjoy it. The blast is gentle, and coaxed out a nifty grain that follows what is often referred to as the ‘English/Irish’ pattern; cross on the front and back of the bowl, birdseye on the sides. Quite recommended!
