Default Thuya Burl Rollerball

One of the best parts of woodturning is revealing what lies below the surface of the wood. The eyes of this Thuya Burl are truly exquisite. Decided on Titanium Gold components to bring out the gold tones in the wood. Thanks for looking,

Bill

The kit is the Jr. Gent II from Exotic Blanks

The blank is stunning and your finish is equally impressive. Sometimes nothing beats a beautiful piece of wood for an artistic template.

Well done and thanks for sharing.
