Wow. That looks really great! I can only imagine the patience it took to do that. Definitely a piece of art work.

The grain in the canary wood is striking and you have done a wonderful job of exhibiting its full potential.

Indeed interesting colours and grain of this wood. Your vase making skill is not questionable.

Peter, it’s a crying shame that Canarywood can’t be finished without losing the fetching aroma, no?

Another beauty Peter, love the way you have set off the grain. Canary wood has great colors and only wish it was
readily available out here. Keep them coming, you have the ring master mastered.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Mate, I really like the way you set out the rings to create such patterns.
Well done.
Thanks for sharng.


-- 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.
