    bowl d'larry

    Okay Larry, here's a quick-pic of somethin i made from your wood. I even named it after you. Spalted red maple, with desert ironwood, about 7"across. I made another one very similar, out of the same chunk, a while back but with more character in the spalting/grain, but I cant find it. I think it's one of the pieces I loaned to the local library for a little art exhibit they are having.
