And, the bad karma bubinga and curly maple. .... Had issues with this one and caused a design change (twice!)

Many others, but these the highlights.

Ox, I just love the way you glue up your wood--you sure have a way of catching the grain just right!!!

Gorgeous, but I wouldn't expect any different from you :wink:

Okay Ox, you just keep making me more and more jealous of you, by using these great woods, matching grains so nicely and turning such gorgeous mills!

BTW, I happen to like the last one the most!

once again your mills rock-- your gift is obvious and I appreciate pics of your work more than you'd imagine... they really get the creative juices flowing

Nice work Ox.

Love the first one. The curl really pops it.

As for design change.....I call those "features" or "operational characteristics".

Thanx, Ox. I couldn't seem to get my mind around how the glue up would be. Makes perfect sense, now.
