    Spalted maple HF in progress

    Unfinished, as Im going to add a stick or pedestal, and perhaps a finial as well. I stopped because I started making stupid (as in I know better) mistakes. Faux collar is burned with wire to add definition. 4.5" x 2.5"
    However and whatever it turns out as, I will post finished whenever that is!
    I post this for the sheer beauty of this chunk of woood - no matter what I do to it from here on.....

    Wowsers, that's a sweet piece of maple. Well worth taking you time to do it up right. Looks like you're on the right track so far. Looking forward to seeing the completed pics.

    Great spalting in that piece!
    Looking forward to seeing the finished results.
