The next product of my grandmother’s copper beech tree – a storm fall from Hurricane Sandy. We have a few more blanks left, two are “eehhhhh” maybe too far gone but we’ll see how they turn out. One really large one, and a couple that are small but stable so we should have some ornaments and small turnings left to complete. All of these projects are staying in the family collection as heirlooms in memorial.

That is a nice looking bowl.

-- Nick, AZ. Wood is a canvas for God's art work, it is our job as woodworkers to figur out the best way to display it.

Fantastic bowl, awesome grain and pattern.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
