    This is a piece of Ginko, it is about 11" tall.

    Only about 3/16" thin, as the large top to bottom inclusion was giving me fits

    Finished with sanding sealer, lacquer and buffed and waxed.

    Kinda looks like a hollow point bullet.....You got plans?

    I'm kidding Stu! Nicely done! I was holding my breath for you since you earlier displayed this. It looked like that inclusion went all the way to the bottom and could be a real booger to complete! Very nicely done! I like the form, finish and the fact that you were able to pull it off! Nicely done!

    Nice job, Stu. Your wife should be real pleased to receive it. Glad to see it survived the ride.

    Ya know, now that you have the bed extension on the DVR, you could always turn a new broomstick for the MIL.
