That looks really interesting! Love the name… and what species was that growing out of the top (Sorry, I had to ask!... you are from CA right?) ;-)

What kind of finish is that? It looks like really really smooth texture, very contridicting to the looks of the material, great work!

I like it, but it deserves a single red rose.

Looks great. What is paralam? A couple of sheep? Seriously, I don’t know what it is.

Ok, I’m a little slow. I didn’t make the connection of the words and the other”material”. At least we know who the brownie lovers are. The term “weed pot” is commonly used by wood turners as a vessel with a small hole in which dried flowers are placed. My bad. Here to fore the vessels will be called “deceased flower repository” to avoid any confusion. As to the paralam—this is a material made similar to laminated beams used in building construction with the difference being that veneer strips are used instead of lumber
