      great use of the natural color of wood and form. Very nice presentation Mike. Hope to see this at the 'Turning Southern Style' Symposium.

      You're right, Mike........

      It is a rare piece of Ambrosia Maple where the beetle stains and white of the Maple are so pronounced. Terrific contrast of color here......

      It is amazing how a simple object, a teapot, can become so elegant!

      Mike, I think the stars lined up just right when you got that piece of wood combined with your super teapot turning. The result is fantastic. Congrats on the turning of the week - most deserved.

      Great piece Mike! A few weeks ago I spent a week with Steven Kennard at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine and Mac Ray was there helping everyone, everyway! He brought in some of his work with Ambrosia Maple. He is, indeed one rare, generous Dude!!
