    All three look good to me, Steve. Very nice wood, and you treated it well. And your pictures aren't all that bad, either.

    Pretty nice. Looks like you got pretty close to the pith on that largest one, but you may well be fine. Your friend will treasure it.

    Hi stephen,
    You're getting the rain too...huh! Every time I try to something in the yard, it rains... my garden is about to drown, my grass is a foot high because 1. the big mower is in the shop and 2. it's too wet to use the push mower and it rains every time I go outside...

    I like the forms you did, you pictures are a little dark on my monitor, but really like the spalted pecan.. good job.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
