That must be some lathe you have to turn an 8' wide piece....
But a real beauty of a piece.
Tellico Plains, TN
My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
That's a fun piece. I like it. When I get better I will try something like that---no, not a copy.
First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.
i see you made another sweet one nate,, must be bill is still making curlies huh

Very nice Nate. Really well done!
It's not what you achieve in life...It's what you overcome!
Sharp Nate!!! M&M holder from a flea market?? Wow! As a thought...what about under cutting the rim? Less M&M's so I don't know. Beautiful chunk of wood...Brother Bill is a good guy to gain inspiration from!

Beauty Nate. Love the wood.

Another nice one, Nate. Any idea where your wood guy is finding the maple? Is it from around here?
So we're not copying a piece, we're being inspired by a piece. And most of us like it when someone else is inspired by our own work.

Vaughn, he travels pretty far to get some of his woods, he said he had a huge BLM burl he wanted me to look at. The gent will be up at the flea market next weekend with some wood for me. It's on NM14 up in Cedar Crest. I really believe in giving attribution to some one who's piece I'm "copying", even if it's not even close.
