You got some nice wood and are showing it off wonderfully. I am so glad you are letting the wood star – your skills may be in the background but it takes a good hand to let the wood shine like this.

Haha. Thanks Jay, Pete and Monte.

Kookaburra: I seem to be drawn to simple forms that show as much wood as possible, generally. It seems to me if I make a curve too exaggerated or put a few too many beads it just detracts. I do want to explore more forms like I was doing earlier in the year, but I’m also reluctant to risk messing up this stuff. Since I roughed these out several months ago the general shape is set now, in any case.

You’re doing just fine by letting the wood speak for itself ! Looking forward to your next piece : )

The natural beauty of the wood and your design and skill compliment each other perfectly!

Yup. No need for fancy curves, just let the wood speak for itself.
Though, the delicate bead you put on the bottom is a neat detail :)
