Wonderful, Several years ago Ron Kent had several bowl blanks crack, Ron had another craftsman see if he could do anything to salvage them, they ended up lacing or stitching the cracks with copper wire and they turned out wonderfully. I love your solution as well…...wonderful work! With time the copper will patina and bleed into the wood …this piece will become even more beautiful as time passes.

Great combo of rustic design and materials.

I’ve got 120 feet of 12 gauge copper wire that I recovered from our visit with the tail winds of Hurricane Ike.
Now I’ve got some ideas on how to use it.
