These are lovely… the spalting and the burl are just spectacular.
Nice to see your creativity at work!

I have enough difficulty just following a woodworking recipe, and Grizz just whips these things out!!

Life isn’t fair :-)

Muchly beautiful stuff, Grizz.

Don’t get too attached to it. I suspect you’ll be shipping them off to their new homes, very quickly!

Very nice pieces. Any time the wood is celebrated for the woods sake, I very much like.

Those pieces look just great Grizz and they do celebrate the beauty of the wood. I liked the little inlays too. Not everybody can imagine a finished piece from a raw hunk of wood, so yes, it is definitely artistic work.
