    Vaughn is now famous among the literati

    Hey, folks,

    It's difficult trying to explain the nuances of one art to practitioners of another. Explaining woodturning to the literary set is like explaining coloratura arias to sculptors: you have to walk a very fine line, and stick to the essentials.

    Fortunately, Vaughn's art speaks for itself, and all that's really necessary is an explanatory detail here and there, a little background on the process, and the photos.

    This piece just went up yesterday, and already there's feedback from Asia, Europe, and all over North America. Here's hoping word of his skill spreads far and wide:

    For those curious about such things, it's part of a much larger piece. But the rest isn't woodworking related, and can be safely ignored...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Bill, that is just TOO cool. You flatter me, sir. Beyond that, I'm out of words.

    Thanks to you, and thanks to your ace of a literary agent.
