Excellent works. Your attention to detail and the natural flow of the woods is very very good. Love the “stitches” work! Great touch. Any chance of getting a better peek at the “paw print” inlayed table the first scuptures are setting on?

Scott – Amazing. Inspired. Exquisite… words fail, sir. God has gifted you with wonderful talent, and I thank you for sharing it with us.

Now then, how oh HOW do you create the pristine bark edge on your wave bowls?

I can’t find words that are not used by others before. So I won’t try.
But I realy want to thank you for sharing your work.
As well your bowls as your chairs are pieces of art.
