That’s very nice, Ron.
Where did you find the sea shell material?
About time to head this way again, isn’t it? Or, are you already here?
Your profile mentions the South West AZ Turners. Yuma?

Real nice Ron, you have brought the grain of the wood out beautifully and like the use of sea shells. Great work.

Gene we are still in Michigan. The sea shell I bought in Tucson at the Rock and Gem show. I think I paid $ 8 for it.

Fantastic work as usual Ron.
That mesquite is really beautiful timber.
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

The mesquite is from Tommocorri AZ South of Tubac there is a sawmill that has tons of burls. For some reason this one was cheap $ 30 It had great figuring in it
