    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    That has some nice lines in it, I don't usually see the inclusions being as crisp as that piece ended up. Almost makes you want to take a sample and culture it up to inoculate some more logs

    I love spalted maple, and that piece is beautifully spalted. Nice bowl, too!

    Beautiful hunk of wood. Maple takes stabilizing very well and can be a big help in preserving the soft parts.

    I started spinning a piece yesterday and the lathe took a dump. Seems the set screws are stripped , so I talked with a mechanical friend who is going to set it up to be more efficient with a speed control. Yahoo.
