Thanks, Dave! I wasn't trying for southwestern, but I guess I got there.

Thanks, Dan! I'm a bit primitive too, so I guess this one's mine!

Thanks, Dick! I had yellow or turquoise as my other choices, but red seemed a better fit with the black on my test piece. Wanted to try some color on it.

Now this is super. Very rustic. I used to make a lot of pots and things like this from Birch bark (usually silver or brown birch). I'd liek to try carving a wooden brith shot glass though!

You are sure tuning them out, Dave and trying all kinds of thin too!

Another nice piece….............Cheers, Jim

Great piece Dave. The guys beat me to the Southwest style. The color adds to it along with the texture. Well done.

Thanks, Dan! Birch is pretty easy to work, and hey, it grows on trees! Just not here in New Mexico.

Thanks, Jim! Practice makes perfect. Or something.

Thanks, Eric! I like the color, but I keep thinking maybe I should've done something different than just red. Maybe alternate red and yellow or something like that…

Thanks, Tom! Mostly to be more careful checking my stock first. This one had a crack that was only partially filled with resin, which is pretty brittle. If I had spotted it earlier, I could've easily patched it on the lathe by dripping in some thin CA, then sanding it to push dust into the glue. As it was, I tried to patch it after I'd pulled it from the lathe and I'm not as happy with the results.

You can see the crack towards her bottom in picture 2. It would've looked better filling it on the lathe, but I textured before I noticed it, which limited my options.

Thanks, Swirt!

Thanks, Pottz. Not a matter how much I drink so much as how many shot-glass-sized smalls did I have laying around the shop.
