    Latest stuff

    Haven't posted any projects in a while, still doing them, just to busy to set up the tent and take the pictures. The first is segmented walnut with 3 carved cherry feet. It's about a foot tall and a foot wide. What's it for, you ask? I dunno. Thats just how it came out. I'll let you guess on the next 2 pieces as to what kind of wood they are (the fruit bowl and the no-bark NE.) Hint; it's not native to the US but a common landscape tree here in the southwest. I've never heard of anyone turning it before, don't know why, it's awsome to work with. They are both about 12"x5". And the last NE is a side-of-the-road Eucalyptus of some sort. I was also surprised at how well it turned, Euc' is usually ornery. Peace! Barry

    No idea on the mystery wood, but they all look great!

    All of them are very nice, Barry. I like the barkless NE bowl(s) the best.

    Love the carved feet. The mystery wood has some awesome grain. Nice work on all your pieces.

    Barry,

    Nice stuff. How'd you get a piece of Euc. finished without it cracking here in AZ? Ornery is a mild way of putting it. Any special drying techniques used? I think I know the other wood but I'll let you tell everyone since it's your post.

    Well Done Barry.

    I like the "side-of-the-road Eucalyptus" the best. Found wood is always a good thing.

    That's some awesome work. I really like that no-bark NE. The wood is awesome and I really like the foot you put on it.

    I have no idea what the mystery woods are except beautiful.
