    Quilted Maple

    This is fine piece of Queensland quilted Maple, it was a rather odd shape and took me awhile to sort out a form that would do it justice. Added to that it was a gift from a friend and this kinda adds to the need to have a fine outcome. 8" x 3.5" WOP and buffed.

    Beautiful piece, Hughie. I was gonna make a wise guy comment about how you slacked off by not carving spirals on the inside, but then I looked at the full-size picture and realized that spirals would hide the gorgeous figure in the wood. Great job, and thanks for sharing. I'm sure your friend will be duly impressed.

    Actually this one and the previous are part of a gallery consignment. I appreciate all your positive comments.
