1201 Maple w/Fiddleback Figure, 8 x 2.25, Sanded to 1200, Danish Oil, Bealle Buff.

10% MC as received, so no further seasoning required. Overall size was 8.5 x 2.5

Your comments, opinions and critiques are greatly appreciated.

As this is my first set of postings, any photo comments or improvement suggestions would also be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, JL
Odie, thanks so much for your comments and rating. Your bowl artistry, attention to detail and wood are incredible and all inspiring to a newbie like me.

As for the piece, I was hoping to have saved more bark inclusions; however external surface damage was just too deep, but on the bright side I was able to save some.

Thanks again.......... JL
 
Joseph-

Nice looking piece. Keep the lathe going and making nice pieces like this and you just might get into coloring your pieces. ;)

Gary,

Thanks so much for your comments.

Have you been talking to my wife? I already have a challenge to color a hollow form for our living room to accent a specific color in the new pillows she purchased. The maple reserved is at 16% MC so it will be a while. Good news for me, because coloring will be a challenge and I need the time to do the R&D trials.

Thanks again........... JL
