This is a piece of "blister" maple I got from Terry Quiram here on FW a while back. This particular piece doesn't have a lot of the blister figure, but it's got some nice curl to make up for it, and the sapwood/heartwood contrast is nice. I decided to experiment a bit with the form...thinking along the "southwest look" lines. In hindsight, I might have made the neck and opening a bit smaller.
This one is about about 5 1/2" high and 6" wide. More of the regular ol' buffed Antique Oil finish.
