    Look what I found

    LAst week I was out in the garage lookin' for something and started lookin' through whe wood I had stacked there. Picked up this irregular piece of Maple I had thrown in the pile in 2005. Looked kinda wierd, soooooooo bein' kind of wierd myself, took it to the basement shop. It turned out like this.

    Weird? I wonder what do you understand by weird, I don't think it is weird at all, in fact it is a nice looking piece.
    Best regards,
