Why, that is so thin, maybe you could turn me a new thinner skull so I could learn things faster… (-:

‘Tis a pretty piece of wood, and a project that takes advantage of it beautifully.

Hope all is well with you and yours. We had a zillion aftershocks (technically new quakes since they are so distant from the original) and I think the total is over 6000, with some as strong as a 5 strength. Seems to be leveling off finally.

We had our winter rains while you guys were in the deep freeze. Now we are colder, as you get warmer, a predictable pattern.

I think you missed your death somewhere along the way, and you have been reincarnated as an artiste!

Have a good one…

An extremely nice piece.

Where I used to live in ND—box elder was just used for fire wood, not nearly appreciated enough at all. We did have a few small sawmills to; but, I do not ever remember seeing any milled either.

Fantastic turning Lew, and what a nice finish to show off the wood! I always wondered about getting some black keys for projects.
