    my best project

    Not really but sometimes it feels like it.
    I started a project this a.m. with a large hunk of wood.
    When I got it turned to round I decided I did not like the appearance of the wood. So, I started another and just got that one to round. Looks OK so now I'll go back and finish.
    Enjoy what I have done so far.

    Agreed. The color and consistency rival that of some masters I've seen. The subtle ripples and waves are intriguing. You must be proud.

    Dang! I thought I had a copyright on that design.

    It is getting so that there are so many people around that it is almost impossible to get an exclusive on a design.

    Enjoy (even though you are a copy cat),

    You really let the wood speak on this one, didn't overdo the finish, either.

    You should have used a skew to get a better finish before sanding!
