    Spalted Curly Maple...Did I Post this One Yet?

    Going through some photos of pieces I managed to turn last year, and can't see that I've posted pics of this one yet. This piece is spalted curly maple, about 7" tall and 7" wide, give or take. It's finished with Formby's Tung Oil Finish, as I recall.

    That's mighty purty, Vaughn!

    Even if you did post it before, it's worth another look!!!

    Innovation is the process that renews something that already exists and not, as is commonly assumed, the introduction of something new.

    Vaughn,
    You always do great work. What more can I say.

    Just so you know I mean it, I'll tell you a very short story. When I was in grade school my wise mother told me, "If you never lie, you don't have to keep track of the stories." To this day being forced into telling a lie is torture for me---Example: "Is my hair pretty today?" If it is fine. If it isn't I try to find ways to slide around it like, "You went in for an interesting color in your hair today. What did Joe think of it?"

    Enjoy,
    JimB
