I finally got home from Afghanistan to have one of these beautiful hoods awaiting my return. I could hardly contain my excitement as I was opening the box to see the fruit of Ken's labor. The hood itself is beautiful and will make a great addition to the other hoods I currently have and will hopefully someday use. Not only is the end result gorgeous but the entire process was easy, with Ken having outstanding customer service throughout. I felt entirely confident in purchasing this hood even though I knew I wouldn't see it for a few months. (More because of me being gone.) Thank you Ken not only for a piece of functional art, but for the great experience you gave throughout the process.
