my dad designed and built the machines he uses to bevel high lead crystal for his amazing pieces. he just gave me this 4' x 2' piece (and a similar one to my sister), it's in a walnut frame that i helped to design (from a tree that used to be on his old farm).

it fills the whole room with rainbows, is it ever amazing.
