Re: Oak burr and slate sculpture.

I think others have nailed the beauty of this also. I love it. Would love it to be hanging on a wall in my house. A real keeper that would be hard to let go. 2thumbsup

Re: Evolutions

Definitely one of my favorites of your pieces Bob, and you made me smile on the comment that the underlying wood doesn't matter...who would know, right!
This one pulls together perfect proportions in my eye, without any one element really stealing the show. Outstanding! 2thumbsup 2thumbsup

Re: Twisted

Mike, I'm in awe at the fluidness of this sort of work...you've done it again. I am typically content to accept that I don't need to know how you get from a block of wood to the finished piece, but I'm curious with this one by your comment "The form started life on the lathe as a turned torus &...

Re: Walnut Calabash

Curt, I echo Mike's comments entirely. Love the randomness of the sticks and not just digging out a single groove. Stunned as usual when someone just give's a try like the stick to make the border rings...well done and ingenious. Your shape is very nice. If folks haven't seen, the most recent AAW Wo...

Re: Gone awry

Beautiful form indeed Chuck, love the chatter work, but as Mike said regarding putting it out there with your name on it...the sharp contrast of inlay makes me ask...do you own a chiminea? ;)
All kidding aside, probably ok to donate. It's an artistic expression and some folks will like it, I'm sure.

Bob, missed seeing this one. I like it...and excellent embellishing, as always. Agree with others that you've got a truly recognizable style, and one liked by many. Congrats on that alone. I do look at this and wonder how to effectively turn it into a box, with wavy edge when split. Perhaps some ban...

Peppermill and salt shaker - Ambrosia Maple

Went to a local flea market this past weekend and snagged a couple nice cutoffs from larger slabs of walnut and maple. I got a bowl lblank from each, and had some left over material on the maple blank for peppermills. The ppm is about 8-1/2" tall, the salt shaker 4-1/2" tall. The ppm parts...

Re: Polar shaft completed (more or less)

Enjoy seeing that you've been plugging away steadily with this. Can understand it doesn't exactly make you think about "the next one", but I'd suspect it will be an emotional insightful time when you can say it's finished. Keep em coming DD...we're here watching and enjoying this journey.....

Well, what do I see? I'd have to go with all of the above, though similarities seem to pervade. I like seeing all the shades of green, perhaps even interpreting as the same color, with different amounts of light added to them...might be a stretch on that. Interesting that you chose just a few orient...
