This walnut and maple vase started out as 75 pounds of wood because I did not have a good idea of what I wanted it to look like. It is now 12” X 12” and weighs 5 pounds. A wheel barrel of shavings and burning up a lathe, here it is. It won 1st place in woodworking at The Newport Blue Bridge Delta Art Show.

I saw your work earlier and thought it looked A OK but as Pottz reported ‘No comment”
But I just had to comment after your attention to detail
“You are right, I fixed it.”

Another excellent work salutation is in order.
