Something New & Different. This is actually a special order that I've been working on and it's not quite finished yet, but I'm posting it now so that the customer can see if it's what she had in mind. The bowl & lid were hand turned out of Texas Honey Mesquite Wood & the inlay is Arizona, Sleeping Beauty Turquoise. The approximate size is; 7" across and about 3-1/2 high. The lid was turned with a thin, but sturdy, rim around the inside so it fits snugly onto the bowl. It is being finished with lots of sanding & several coats of a high gloss polyurethane. The bowl itself had quite a bit of spalting,  which resulted in my having to do more inlay work than usual, but that is what adds to the beauty of this special piece. My price for this is; $175.00 and although this one will probably be sold, I definitely plan on making more, so, if you like this one, check with me on anything new I might be working on.
HELLO RHONDA, WHAT YOU THINK!!  Know your re-tiring co-worker will be very pleased with your gift.....(got your inscription onto the inside of lid, a bit tight, but readable)

We just received our box with our goodies in it. We could not be more pleased with your product, everything is absolutely beautiful. I am looking forward to giving our retiree all of her gifts, I know she is going to love them.And a special thank you for taking such good care of us with the special rush-order bowl & lid with an inscription. Not only is the product beautiful, you have great penmanship too!

Got a friend who loves the outdoors? Looking for that special handcrafted wooden gift that you know they won't have? Here's a Survival Tool that may be a lifesaver for any hunter, camper or fisherman. The Survival Fire Starter works better than matches and lighters and will function reliably in wet, windy or cold conditions. The system includes a flint rod, a steel striker, a magnesium bar, a leather strap and a compass. To make a fire, use the striker to scrape flakes from the magnesium bar, then quickly scrape the striker against the flint. Hot sparks will fly off the flint that ignite the magnesium. Magnesium is suited to ignite in a wet environment and creates a white-hot starter fire of about 5400 degrees. Includes a 5/8 dia x 2-5/8 magnesium bar with a .15 dia flint and 15mm dia compass, which is inserted into the back end.  Approximate size; 6-1/2" long. Finished with several coats of a polyurethane sealant.
