Birdseye Madness

IMG_1478With just a shot of water from a spray bottle you can see what the grain will be. Here I’ve used a cross-grain block of briar again so instead of straight grain running up the bowl, the grain runs sideways through the pipe, leaving the ends of the grain, or “birdseye” visible on the left and right sides of the bowl. I’m thinking this pipe will be stained dark. Stay tuned, I’ll try to finish the stummel Saturday and then the stem Sunday. More pics to follow.
