    Some More of Robert's Scrap Wood

    It's been a while since I posted post some pics of finished pieces. (Waited until I had several to photograph before setting up the lights and tent.) This is some more maple I got from Robert Mickley. It's another nice curly piece with a bit of spalt mixed in for good measure. It's about 13 1/2" wide x 3 1/2" tall. The finish is my standard Antique Oil followed with lacquer and buffed.

    I've got more pics of other pieces that I'll share over the next few nights as I get time to post them. I'm trying to gear up for another show next weekend.

    One heck of a nice piece of wood there, and you certainly showed it off nicely!

    Wow, just don't cut it.

    Do you have a ballpark idea of how much you would sell something like that for?

    Not meaning to be rude, don't have to answer, but I'm just curious is all, I'd think it would fetch a pretty penny or three

    Cheers!

    That is a spectacular piece of wood, Vaughn. I don't know many superlatives to properly describe it. Very, very, nice!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Stu, I'm figuring on between $200 and $250 for this one. I may end up owning it for a while before someone agrees with me on those numbers, but I don't think it's an unreasonable price for such a unique piece of wood. This stuff doesn't just grow on trees, ya know. Well, I guess it does, technically, but you know what I mean.

    And thanks, Mike, for the kind words, too.

    We should be so lucky to find scrap like that. You have made a very nice bowl.

    Vaughn, I'd say your price is very fair, that is one heck of a nice looking piece!

    Amazing wood Vaughn! I would have to think that it would be sold to the very first person who saw it! Can't imagine passing that by! Very nice work! Let know how your show goes!

    Vaughn,

    Wow! That is an amazing piece and I love the choice of finish. What is the antique oil you spoke of? Is that a Tung oil or BLO with some added hues? Really made the curl pop. How many coats of each did you use?

    Thanks,
