Joe…..This may be my favorite….the color, the form, the finish, the wood selection….it all comes together with your artistry. It seems to glow from within. Thanks for sharing with us.

Incredible! Beautiful wood work, and excellent photography. The form is almost heart-shaped (right in time for Valentine’s Day).

I was finishing curly maple with Minwax products and wondering why I wasn’t getting the results I was hoping for. After a Google search on the Internet, I was linked to LumberJocks and your blog/instructional on finishing. After using your techniques with aniline dyes, I finally achieved what I felt was my first success with finishing curly maple.

Thank you – I have been telling anyone who will listen about your blog. It certainly helped me!
