This could be an uplifting gaming table base. Please don't tell the Pope!

How about a billiard table with the balls collecting in the lions mouth. There will need to be four lions carved. I am ready to take orders. How much is this worth?

I have to "paws" to think what a value for this piece would be.

The "mane" thing is to always have "pride" in your work.

I am sorry to drag everyone down to my level. It's a slippery slope. We can all wallow in the depths of furniture despair. What will we work on next? Tomorrows projects are what I live for (literally).

Well I would be a lion ass if I didn't admit to wondering where the balls would come out

You can lead a lion to water but! Who knows where his balls will land maybe between his front paws. This could be an option also. I don't like where this is going. I just thought that this would be a fun project.
