Curly spalted maple

I have been quiet lately, so I thought I would show pics of what I milled today. Camera phone shots (and my phone cam sucks-doesn't show the curl well). Looks nicer in person. Just a little chunk o' log I have had stashed back ''cookin''. I should get some neat projects from it. I cut some thin stock for jewelry boxes and such, and knocked off some thicker for turning.

That's a gorgeous looking grain Daren. Why do i get the feeling that your father may be scooping some of that wood?

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Wow, Daren, that's beautiful stuff

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
