Wow, as soon as I carve a maple stock, I’m going to try your dye technique. I’ve had my best results with maple and also my biggest mistakes.

Another beauty! This one reminds me of a giant Bing cherry. I love cherries! Nicely done.

I can always pick your work out when you post. Another excellent piece. You have definately mastered your finishing technique. Could almost pass as a blown glass vase.

Do you sell all these you make? If so, what is your average price you get for something like this?

beautiful, your finish and colors reminds me of some of the new bowling balls Iv’e seen.
Was wondering, How much time does it take to put a finish on your work?, looks very time consuming, but well worth the results.
