    Afzalia Burl Vase

    Here is a little vase I turned and had to do a slight design change. It had a lot of little voids and came apart. I could take the bottom off as I needed it for gluing. Finished with AO and buffed. Guess it didn't bother the same lady as she asked about it and I told her $60. She asked if she could write a check for both and I told her yes. She bought this one for her daughter.

    Dang, you're on a roll, Bernie. You need to send me some of your customers.

    Pretty vase, too.

    Thanks again. Pete haven't sold much since Christmas but then again people will walk in and buy. Can't explain why. I will be posting in the near future a set of Cherry salad bowls I sold for $510. Well she called Saturday and wants another set and she would let me know but maybe a walnut set. Boy wouldn't that be nice.
