that is great use of material.. great job on a good looking project.. the inlay was a perfect add. i’ve made almost those same lamp shades out of maple veneer.. second hand store for the frame, then steam (lightly) veneer to shape..

Nicely done. I was recently in Sedona, AZ and saw a piece that reminded me of your work. Are you showing at any of the galleries there?

HI mmh: We are not showing juniper in any galleries, all though it would be wonderful to do so.

Thanks for all the great input. Good luck and happy woodworking
