`Open Flower`

   Broad Leaf Maple Vase. 10"X5". Turned and then carved. Finished with pure tung oil and buffed with carnuba wax. Bottom and inside have been burned, sanded and finished. 

   While in the last stages of thinning out the top inside portion of the vessel a crack appeared on one side. To solve the dilemma I started experimenting with lines to cut out the crack and save the piece from the burn pile. (Or the clutches of my daughter!) The result is better than the original! In some moments mistakes or flaws can be inspiration!


Venus of Maple

   Broad Leaf Maple.  18"X6". Swivel Maple Base. 

Yellow Cedar Double Burl Bowl

   Yellow Cedar Burl Bowl turned on 2 centres to make 2 bowls in one piece of wood.

   22" X 10" X 2".  Finished with pure Tung Oil and  buffed with Carnuba wax. 

   I actually cut through the bottom of one of the bowls. To fix the problem I cut the hole in the shape of an eagle head and filled it with epoxy and included a small piece of garnet for an eye. 

   Available for sale. $450.
