    Absolutely awesome pieces!!!!

    The open segmented piece and the ambrosia maple are my favorites, but the hollow segmented piece is a very nice piece as well.

    Next time, don't hold out on us so long.
    Thanks & Happy Wood Chips,

    Chris, when I saw that walnut and maple segmented basket, my first comment was "Holy Matilda." It is absolutely gorgeous, and whoever gets it will be one lucky stiff. The vaaaase is beautiful, and the HF is exquiste. Let's see some more!!

    Hey Chris, really way nice work! I love all three, but my favorite is the Ambrosia Maple. So pretty, you chose a perfect shape and finish. Very nice! Where's your show? Best wishes on that! Jude
