This is a beautiful piece that is classic and timeless. Carl unquestionably was a remarkable craftsman. We worked with Carl for over 20 years in conjunction with Doc. Albo selling Carl’s pieces exclusively through our Triad alliance which was a great team.
We lost Carl I think in 2017. I sure miss him, as we had a lot of fun creating great pieces of apparatus not to mention the fun he and I would have when we were lucky enough to get together, usually in Las Vega at the Desert Magic Seminar’s. Carl and I would tease each other and make all finds of fun bets on who would buy the beer. – Joe Stevens
