There could be more background on what the materials are made out of during Q&A. Lots of unanswered questions with regards to what wood was used here and there.

It was everything my art instructor told us it would be. Everything made by Wharton Esherick. Everything beautifully done. His creativity was amazing. The publicity was honest and accurate. You were clear that reservations are required. You were clear that you were a bit hard to find so use our GPS and we did.
