2 Hearts- 7 1/2” D x 8 1/2” H 398 Pieces 12 segments per row
Purple Heart and Yellow Heart segmented vase. This is my toughest piece so far and took me a week to cut, sand, glue and assemble this piece. It gave me great satisfaction to make this one and my wife really likes this one!
A Grapefruit Bowl- 10 1/2” D x 2 1/2” H
I picked this wood up from a tree service company while on vacation in Fort Myers, Fl. The guy said this wood is extremely hard to work with. I did not have any kind of problem working with it and loved the way it turned. Possibly the guy’s tools were not sharp enough? This wood was already beautifully spalted and I love the patterns on it. I still have a few more pieces of Grapefruit left to turn.
