Saved this piece from a pile of firewood. I almost don’t want to sell it.

-- to turn or not to turn, is that really a question?

That is another beautiful piece of wood. I can understand why you don’t want to sell it.

Great piece, I know the feeling. I sell mine unless there is something “Special” about it.

Thanks for sharing.


-- 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.

To burn or not to burn, in this case not. Nice job, the bowl is a beauty!

Sometimes its the wood that makes the project. This certainly fits that bill Branch. Such a beautiful piece of wood. I wouldn’t want to part with it either. Very nice.
