>OK, so not too much turning here, but a little at least. This is a gift for the onwer of the Sushi restaurant who has taken such good care of Mrs. Schwingding and I since we had only begun dating. The octopus you see pyrographed in is their logo. The wood is all maple burl except for the walnut feet, which I had intended to dovetail in, but got too greedy with the straight bit, so instead they're square. All textures are burned, and the whole thing is finished with General Finishes Salad Bowl Finish. Fun project. The pyro octopus was first stenciled on, then pyro'd with lots and lots of tiny dots. Pretty amazing detail can be had when working with a high power magnifier. Comments welcomed.
