    Starting early!

    Well I stayed at home today and worked virtual. I was able to get all that I needed to do before lunch so guess where I went?

    I got kind of crazy out there and spent the rest of the day on a single project. This piece is made from Brazilian Cherry with a Bloodwood finial. I did the small captive ring in the center just because. It is 7-1/4 tall and 2 wide. It is also hollowed to the form. I made the bottom with quite a bit of mass to make up for the height and it being a suction fit lid.

    (Sorry about the flash shadows, I am working on that)





    Thats for having a look and tell me what you think?

    My dear friend Kenneth,

    That piece took my breath away. I think it is the best that you have posted to date. I've not seen Raffan or Stott do anything as nice as that.


    It is with a joyus heart and a smile on my face that I say to you.
































































    YOU SUCK!
