    Pictures of latest four pieces

    Been a while since I posted pictures. Been working on improving them for showing online and to use for juried shows.

    Let me know what you think of the pieces and the photos (Photos are not perfect, but a whole lot better than before.)

    Bruce, I like them all but tend to agree with Larry's comments.

    Nice Job

    Nice work, Bruce. The maple sure has some pretty curl to it, and I'll bet the cedar made your shop smell good for a while.

    Photo-wise, I agree they look better than I've seen from you in the past. They all four still look a little light on my monitors, though. I would try reducing the exposure (or setting the exposure compensation to a lower number) and see if that helps darken them a bit and improves the contrast. Or, if you're using photo editing software, you can reduce the brightness a little and also bump up the contrast just a smidge.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Really nice stuff Bruce. I've wanted to do a horn shape for a while now and yours is a great example.

    I like the first and the last one. They are all nice pieces though. Keep up the nice work.

    Put me down for the walnut. If you lived closer I'd swap some spalted beech for a piece off that. I also like this shape. People keep telling me it's not a practical shape for a bowl but I think it looks great
