    Great looking piece of Spalted Maple!
    Nice eye pleasing form with a great finish.

    I agree with your wife, Steve. That's very nice work. The form on the vessel is pretty much textbook perfect.

    Nope your wife has it all wrong. The best thing for you to do is ship that to NH for proper display.
