    Barkless Birch

    This is a piece of Birch from Kentucky. It ended up 4-3/4" high on the ends and 11" x 9" wide. It is about 1/16" thick - kinda flexible and very lightweight. I also branded around the rim - inside and out. India ink was used on the outside.

    Boy is that sweet, and the use of the India ink is really cool, I'd love to see some WIP pics of this kind of thing

    Nice looking with the Black outside and contrasting inside but the knot just blew it for me. I don't like those features and feel that a similar piece without that kind of feature would be a better design. On the first picture I was (?) Hmmm, whats he doing? then the second Perked a goo deal of interest and thought that was neat and creative, but then the third blew out my candle and I relaxed back to a ho hum attitude.

    IMHO

    thanks for the post but stop with picture #2
