    A Fair Piece

    Here's a piece I did to enter in The Great Geauga County Fair. It won a blue ribbon but shortly after, it was on display at an outdoor event and a freak storm showed up and blew it off the stand.
    The flared disk under the body broke in half and broke my heart.
    Took me a year to figure out how to fix it.
    Ended up removing the stem, turning away the flare, making a new one, and putting humpty dumpty back together again.
    Anyway....all is right with the world again.
    Oak burl, walnut, and cherry. Finished in gloss lacquer.

    I can see why you won the Blue Ribbon John. I'm glad you were able to repair it!

    Very eye pleasing. Is the picture the repaired one or the original ? The lacquer finish looks extremely well done, btw.
