    Walnut Crotch NE

    Finished this one up today... sanded just enough to remove any tooling for a more natural feel and then wiped on some antique oil.

    Comments/critiques/suggestions all welcomed...





    If you have a pulse you have a purpose...

    I really like this one, Mark. The uneven rim catches my eye in a good way, and everything else about it just works great.

    Very nice Mark! I'm amazed how you guys can turn things like this and keep the rough edges from blowing off. One day I'm going to give this a try but it looks like I need to buy a chuck first.

    Is 'WOW! adequate. Beautiful.
    My natural edge would have been all over the shop.
    Well done.

    Reminds me of when I used to swirl my ice cream as a kid.

    Wonderful grain and wonderful job!
