Branch, that is totally awesome, I love the colour and wood choice, they really go well together.
I’ve been thinking about segmenting but have just brought a heap of bowl blanks that will keep me busy for quite a while.
Your work is excellent.


-- 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.
