    Donation for Public TV Auction

    This last week, I make two pieces for our local public TV's annual Art auction.

    While doing them, I decided to do something differently in my finish.

    Here they are for your comments. I'm especially interested in what you think of the grain pop and the overall appearance.

    Nice job, Bruce. I like the look of polished (but otherwise unfinished) wood. Hard to tell much about the ash bowl, as the picture is pretty small, but the cedar sure shined up nicely.

    Sounds like someone got a Beall Buffing System!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!
