After playing with so many Silver Maples I knew it did not have enough character so I switched to wet
Walnut. Love what has happened with the striking color difference.

Pieces are around 4 inches each direction. More in work

C and C welcome

Yes I have a video in work on how I cut this from the slab of wood. Should finish it this weekend

Beautiful pieces Ron.
What did you use for the finish to preserve the live edge?
Great work as always.

Different as all get out, but beautiful as well. I used different as a compliment, and an excellent job on them, however you did it. Can’t wait for the video as well. Thanks for showing. Mel

Can’t wait to see the video. These two scream to me, that stark contrast between, bark, sap, and heart, are wonderful here. The Maples were very nice, but the Walnut is awesome.

How often does one of these thin walled beauties just decide to come apart while turning them? I’m thinking knots could prove interesting :-)
