    Last one i promise.

    At least for a while. This is a piece of poplar 11x 3/4. Thought it was a nice piece, but wanted to do something more with it. So as my mom likes birdhouses, and christmas is coming up.Yep i'll be sending this to her for christmas. It is turned, burned, and colored.The wife said if it wasn't going to my mom she woun't let it out of the house.Click image for larger version.

    What did we do wrong to make this the "Last one i promise."

    Whatever it was, we take it back.

    Enjoy,

    Steve, I need to get out on the lathe and post some pics so you don't have to so much. Please don't think we're getting tired of your pieces...this is another great one.
