very elegant – it is one of those things you pick up to feel the texture and see the differences in the grain around the piece.

My compliments on an impressive work of art. There is so much about it that attracts my interest. The wood, for example. I’m only guessing at the wood type, but maybe a piece of juniper or mesquite? It’s beautifully chaotic and flowing fibers immediately attract my interest. But its color, a muted orange, absolutely ignites the subtle turquoise color of the inlay. Your choices evidence a vibrant imagination.

I am inspired by your work. Thank you for sharing it.

Very cool, love the wood, it looks like the grain dictated the pattern. Truly spectacular piece of work and the turquoise color helps it stand out, nice contrast.

I had this piece of wood laying around the shop for quite some time and never really new what to do with it. So I had just hung on to it. Once I started adding inspirational words to other pieces of wood, it just fit and felt right. Again this what a lot of fun, I enjoy carving out the words its very relaxing
