here come ole flat top...

Not sure how I feel about this one. THis was a left over from a lamination project that I decided to leave the flat edges. Aside from the tool mark that I was afraid to go any further on, what do you think?

I like your color combination and with the light at two sides it looks almost square at first glance.

Balanced

Nice job on getting the wood centered that can make or break how a piece will look in the end, well done.

I like it. The mix of colours gives it tremendous visual interest.

Cheers,

I like it. Nice contrast of woods and the straight edges add an extra element of interest.

Interesting creation. The flat side might appeal to some since the bowl will be able to go right up against the wall---might create a new genre?
Seriously tho' looks really good in the pics, and way to go to get the most out of a blank!

Thanks for posting the song.

So now the trivia.

For whom did John Lennon write this song?

Answer for Timothy Leary's run for an elected office, may have been Congressman, I forget. He did not get to run since he was busted for LSD.

For a second there, I thought you were talking about me when you said Flat top.

Seriously though, this is beautiful work. You know my thoughts about where it should be posted, but I've learned to check this section and with your gorgeous work, I'm rarely disappointed when I do. Great work good sir, great work.
