  3. charlie knighton liked odie's media 1533 Quilt Maple (11) in the category Member Galleries

    Since we were discussing chatoyance in the forums, I chose this one as my next entry to the AAW gallery. #1533 was completed on 8/29/17, and is Quilted Maple. It was a KD blank, with 12% MC.....so, no seasoning was necessary. Originally harvested in WA state, came to me as a square blank 8" x 3 1/2", and the final size is 7 11/16" x 3 7/16".....245 grams, or 8.64oz. Sanded to 600gt, Danish Oil Natural, Beall 3/step Buffed.
