    ambrosia maple HF

    Very nice, Steve.

    Since I'm one of the judges in the Beauty and the Beast contest, I should probably not say anything more about the piece for now.

    Thanks all. Now if there is any thing you would change please let me know. Havn't turned it in yet so still have time to rework or even junk and start over. please don't be shy.

    I see a prize in your future!! Good transition from the mouth to the finial. Shape is really cool and the finish is a winner!

    Way late to this party, but I had to say that I love this piece. The curves are fantastic, and it doesn't hurt that you started with a nice little chunk of cellulose!
