    Bit more from the lady of the house.

    This is (was) a plain 5" acacia bud vase then she got her hands on it. She has burned it deeply to give a textured appeal as well as visual.

    Very nice, Pete. And a big tip o' the hat to Sue for taking a plain-looking vase and making it something special.

    No contest, she draws, sews, embroiders, cooks, decorates cakes quilts, paints and is also 18" shorter than me so if i offend her her punch is very dangerous,.

    That's a great rendition Sue, a formal design (not free flowing) but it compliments the shape of that piece.

    Looks like you had better increase your output Pete if you're not going to cramp Sue's style.

    We have been digging through the boxes looking for things that she can work on. I have also had to spend time sanding off ones that she wasn't happy with. Amazing how long it can take to get a burn mark out of a piece of wood.

    She is rather clever and getting better all the time. I have to admit is is nice being able to work with her like this. Next step is having a go at some basic carving. I still like my rustic stuff but I have my eye on doing gallery quality work using the different mediums.
