OoooooH! Beautiful as usual! You keep out doing yourself, and that’s wonderful! Do you have any of your work in galleries? Please send me a note if interested in some that I scouted in AZ.

Joe you find some really interesting pieces of wood and then bring out the best in them with your turning and use of dyes. The name really fits this one.
