    Little Present

    I gave this to the guy who runs the tree service. He cradled it like gold. Sure makes the heart feel good!

    That was a great gesture, and it'll likely net you some nice turning wood in the future. That's an amazing piece of wood, and you did a great job on it.

    That's a beauty! Is that some of the cherry burl? I always wonder if the tree trimmer guys have any idea how much beautiful wood they feed into the chipper. After holding that in his hands he'll probably think twice every time he chops one up.

    Beautiful piece Pete! Always makes you feel good when someone likes your work! You know he is going to show it off to everyone! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that this turns into some sales for you down the road! Nice work - even nicer gesture!!

    I'm not surprised he was cradling it ... if someone gifted me with as lovely a piece as that I'd be doing the same - it's beautiful!!
