Beautiful piece of wood and a great job in making something from 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.

Wood like that really grows on trees, but not enough of them. And then takes a master turner to bring out the beauty. You did it.
