Another week, another woodworking update…

My latest woodworking update: 2 pieces for my wonderful wife, Santina.  The first is a vessel/bowl made from claro walnut burl.  The second is a box (with lid) made from big leaf maple burl.  Burls are pretty cool.  As long as you’re careful when turning (there are more than a few cracks/gaps in burls), the swirling grain patterns are worth it.  Here are two pictures–or go directly to the walnut vessel or the maple box.
