the woods are pulper heart cherry wenge maple
they are 176 pieces in each
the bottom is a little different in one it has mahogany around the boxes and

Wow, they are real nice Branch, they will catch the customers eyes alright but don’t sell them to early in the day.
Well done, they look great.

Too cool! If MC Escher were a bowl turner this is what they would look like!

After they look at these they will be so dizzy, they will say just name your price. Make it worth while as they are works of art.

The original picture, from a short distance, looked like a butterfly. Nicely done. Eye catching was mentioned, I’ll agree with that. Thanks for sharing.

They are both really “EYE CANDY” Branch, I love them.
Great job.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
