    Little Kaleidosocope eggs for upcoming show.

    I'm getting ready for a show that I did last year and had a few of the little kaleidoscope eggs. They sold out right away, so I thought I might have a few more for this year... hope they sell as well. I've added little egg stands to complement the wood. See what you guys think.

    The woods are 1. bocote, 2. thuya burl, 3. spalted maple, 4. paduak, 5. colorwood "flaming ash"
    6. Birch from a beaver dam on the Tellico River, 7. colorwood "spring camo", 8. tulipwood, 9. colorwood "grew shadows"
    and 10. paduak again.
    the skinnier eggs are because I had smaller blanks to start with. The bocote and Tulipwood don't have egg stands yet.

    Chuck, if you don't mind me asking, what do you get for these?

    They look great, and I can see why they would sell out

    The stands are excellent and surely enhance the sales. Like how things lined up grainwise.

    Good looking pieces. I was going to ask also what you got for those. I almost made some last year but didn't get around to it but might give it a go this year.

    They sure look great with the stand but the ones without a stand also look pretty good.

    Stuart,
    Thanks for the completements. I usually get $25 for the eggs without the cup, with the little egg stands I'll ask $35... It takes as much or maybe a little more work to do the cup as it does the egg.
