Love your artwork Ron, is the irregular top rim due to movement from turning wet? it adds a real point of difference to the piece.
Very nice

Great job Ron.
Just have to love that design and artwork.


-- 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.
