That really looks great. I’ve always liked the spalted figures in any wood – sort of like chocolate swirls in vanilla ice scream. I wish I could find some in Oklahoma!

Well Done Marry Anne. The spalted wood sometimes can be a trick to work with. You seemed to have captured the beauty of that wood in a very nice form…. “A tip of the Hat” to you.

I just went to your gallery & found this little gem. ‘Ol mom nature sure gave you a beautiful piece of wood & you did ‘er proud. Lovely little shape and I like the little bead foot. Is that a sewer gas sniffing raccoon? Does s/he start gasping and let you know to get out of the crawl space? LOL LOL

Thanks, Michelle. I have a couple more pieces of this beautiful wood. I’m waiting for it to tell me what it wants to be.
