Life has been crazy with the early arrival of the nice weather. So many things keeping me out of the shop.

This was just a small chunk of Ambrosia Maple that had been staring at me from the shelf.. I just couldn’t take it anymore and HAD to turn it. The flowerbeds can wait another day… lol

Sorry I have not been on much to see everyone’s projects and comment.. I will try to catch up this week!

Also excuse the lack of photography skills on these shots.. didn’t have time to get the photo booth set up this week.

Enjoy the sunshine!

That looks fantastic, my question is. Do you cut out a usable chunk of wood from the inside or is the inside laying on the floor in chips?
