Beautiful, simply beautiful wood, and your work turning only makes it that much more beautiful. You have done very well indeed. I am wondering how high is the vase? Mitch

Hey Mitch,Thanks for your interest;dimensions are 6'x6'x14"(height).The "fiddleback"is quite intense!!,a common feature of Queensland Maple.Incidently,they grow to 6ft wide and over 100ft tall!Regards MAPLEMAN

That is some nice work. That wood has some seriouse depth to the grain. I love it. Keep posting and thanks for sharing.

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