this particular canary board had 2 red strips on one side and one red strip on the other side..when cutting my rings I noticed that the red strips in the end grain had white centers…I flipped every other ring to create my pattern and a perfect R appeared on the front and a perfect A on the back…I sold this vases at a recent show and the customer definitely got a ONE OF A KIND CREATION!!! All of my items are made from rings cut at different angles, glued,sanded and finished by hand…,comments always appreciated!! thanks for looking!

Nice vase – the rm has done some pretty neat numbers and letters for me also. It usually happens in beetle kill pine for me

What a lovely piece. My wife was looking over my shoulder and ask why I don’t make those…after all, you have a Ring Master.

Another beauty Peter, the letters make it a one of. Great finish on the vase really brings out the grain patterns.
