I love the color of this one. Aren’t you about out of the end grain fiddle back yet? I just scored an 8”x8” by 8 foot piece of very cool figured cottonwood. Gonna be rugged to turn though on my dumb lathe.

Joe-

I have a challenge for you. With your next piece of curly maple, instead of turning it end grain, turin it side grain and place the curl across the top. See if you like having the broad canvas on the top to apply color to and what it does with the reflected light. Try to keep the vessel relatively flat like a river rock.

I think you’ll like it.

Somehow, this is the first time I’ve noticed the dimensions. I’ve been thinking these are all 14”-16” tall for some reason. There’s so much depth to them, they seem much larger.

Do you have a museum room loaded with shelving and glass cases to display all of these? And can we see it? And have I already asked you this?

Thanks for all the feedback. I appreciate all of them.

Christopher, as long as Mother Nature keeps making fiddle back, I’ll keep using it. I look forward to seeing your cottonwood creations.

John, the Art Festival went well. I received 1st place in Fine Craft.

Steve, thanks for the suggestion. Aquifer was turned with that grain orientation. I do like the looks of it. I will have to do some more.

Gary, oddly enough I only have a couple of pieces on display. Most of my pieces have either sold or are packed up ready to be sold. Typically the new pieces are on display for a couple of days before being packed up.

What is the address where you are selling them out of Joe. Can we access this. If the price isn’t too bad I’d like to get my hands on one of your creations. I have a feeling some day they will be worth some moola. Again you’ve outdone yourself.
