    mallee

    I have been very quite for most of this year due to a variety of reasons and finally I can get some shop time, Yay!

    A piece of Mallee that started out red and now is brown. But still a good piece of burl, hard for carving. 8 spirals each one a full turn, oiled with Danish Oil and buffed.

    1. That's a gorgeous piece of wood and your typically impeccable turning and carving work just highlights it even more.

    2. You carved mallee burl? Are you masochistic or something? That stuff is as hard as concrete-encrusted woodpecker lips.

    Exqusite. Very beautiful, both the wood and the execution. Super.
