I love olive wood and the effects it has on any turning. The flatness of this piece adds to the illsionary effect that the rings produce as the grain swirlls back anf forth. Very nice. 8)
BTW, does anyone else see the wave that has either a surf board or a seal caught up in the back of the wave? Turn you head to the left and see if you don't see it. Then again, since I just got home from Florida I could be dreaming about getting back to the FL beaches in a couple of years.
