It’s been busy at the studio with students and visitors lately but I still had some time to finish up this beautiful piece of figured Big Leaf Maple that Todd Halleman brought out for me. Thank you very much Todd this piece was a lot of fun to turn. Finished with Grit and Sheen.

beautiful, I really like how the smooth lines show off the fantastic grain!
