    Very pretty piece of wood, Pete. I'm not sure I like the long stem...I'd have to see it in person to really know. Regardless of my tastes, it's a nice job.

    I'm not sure if I like the shape either but the wood was so nice I didn't have the heart to take away any more. I think of it as a martini glass.

    Very interesting. But, and I mean this in the nicest possible way, what the heck is it? Is it simply a bois en soi? A representation of a conceptual view of a cultural imperative? Or just a really cool flared bonker?

    The good news: it survived the ride, which is more than I can say about what I tried to do last night. Geez...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I am now thinking of it as an unstable cherry pit holder.
