    My starter for 2010

    ______
    ________Something basic but colourful to start the year...________Click on images for larger view.

    __________________Maple? _____________________(250 X 100mm)

    Wood kindly donated by a UK forum member, we discussed the species during a get together last autumn, we came to the conclusion that it was probably Maple, very Sycamore like in the basic figuring but considerably harder than any Sycamore I've handled before.

    Very Nice Chas. Is that the first truning on the new Mayo ?

    Chas,
    agree with everyong, very very nice piece... does look a lot like a maple burl with some birds eyes in it.. what ever it is, it's definitely a keeper ( or a seller if you are so inclined )

    Need to get off my duff and go to work myself... soon as it warms up some... too much of a wuss to spend too much time in the cold.

    Definitely off to a good start for the year, Chaz. Whatever the wood might be, it's sure a pretty piece.
