The Muse: Kevin Mcneally http://www.turnedwood.com/bowls.html
These two Mexican Fan Palms have graced my neighborhood’s sunsets, and moonscapes for decades. The neighbor decided she didn’t want them anymore. they were cut down today. I brought home a handful of foot-and-a-half long, ten- to -twelve-inch diameter chunks, and one about three-and-a-half feet long. Some of you really smart Buddies, I’m sure, can tell me what I need to do to use this material, and make Things as beautiful of it as Kevin has managed. He uses commercially-processed, kiln-dried Black Palm boards. I’ve emailed him, asking for suggestions, or, at least ideas/links to someone who can help. Now, my Beloved Buddies, I’m asking you for help. And, I know I’ll get it. Thanks.
