    So I had some more scraps and some of the grain is just amazing !
    When I glue these up I really don't have a plan , I just put them
    together and see what comes out .
    A few of you have seen this , well here it is done I just need to set a
    knot and I am not sure which way to go ,I already have quite a few 2 band badgers
    and they all feel great but I am thinking maybe
    This one has some sections of grain that I just want everyone to see. NEW-Graydog.jpg12.jpg NEW-Graydog.jpg13.jpg NEW-Graydog.jpg15.jpg NEW-Graydog.jpg18.jpg NEW-Graydog.jpg19.jpg

    Here is how it began [​IMG]
     
  6. I don't have the patience to turn a shave brush let alone to glue up a blank in suck an intricate manner. Very nice.
     
  7. Wow! I love it, I think you need a nice boar in this one!
     
  8. That looks awesome. The finish makes the grain pop even more than the earlier pictures I saw. Looks like 11 pieces of wood if my count is right. I would imagine the different grains and densitys of the wood would make turning that a bit more of a challenge.

    Once you get it like a cylinder it is not bad, that is when you can see what is
    and what isn't and then find a shape that works with the layers
     
  11. nice shape and contrast!
     
  12. Call it "Picasso" because it started out Cubist! Beautiful as per normal Sir.
     
  13. That boar looks pretty happy in there.
     
  14. Perfect name for it.

  15. WOW!!! Looks terrific!! :a14::a14::a14:
     
  16. That's really artful matching of the pieces. "Quilt" is the ideal name too.
    I'd be pleased to own one of those.
     
  17. Really nice!
    Love the look with the boar.
     
  18. You really do outstanding work!
