    Brown Mallee Burl HF

    Have not had much time to post or reply to posts lately. Thought maybe I should throw something out. This piece measures 5-3/4" dia. x 2-3/4" tall with the walls at about 1/8". Weighs a tad over 4 oz. No finish on this piece, only the three Beall Buff steps. Critiques/comments always welcome. Thanks for looking.

    Ya nailed another one, Keith. I like everything about it. (Although some strategically-placed copper nails might really take it to the next level.)

    BTW, if you're throwing it out, toss it my way, wouldja?

    Keith,

    Really nice, I wondered when you was going to post a picture of this one here. I saw it elsewhere. As always you did a great job.

    That is some fine work, Mr. Burns. Glad Ms. Judi let you out in the shop long enough to finish it...
