plugs and stones

Today I made small walnut plugs to cover the lag bolts used to assemble portions of the bench, and have begun the process of inlaying the stones on the top.

Doug, all things considered, what a beautiful piece of walnut! What a privilege to work with such a beautiful piece of wood.

I had a discussion today with a faculty member who is concerned with trees and their well being. I had a moment of angst yesterday while driving home to note that the Bradford Pear trees had been decimated to make way for the power lines...yikes, what is going on??? The pear trees are normally perfectly shaped and are in full bloom now. But they have been destroyed. How sad...in the name of the electric grid. Sigh....
