Indeed! Can’t have too many hearts or rainbows.

Ha! It does sorta look like runout, but instead we’ve just got white pine being white pine. (Which is a fine backdrop for young artists with felt markers, BTW.)

That's really cool. Beautiful work as always!

Depending on how thick and actual size, that would be great as a heel cap or even a rosette if there is enough of it, truss rod cover to match the heel cap, or just a piece of artwork!!!

Laminate it to a slab of that really light wood you made the desk from and make some Kinnaird coasters. Or cut it out the same size as your soundholes and glue it to your soundhole cutouts and make Kinnaird coasters...or any one of many other coaster ideas.

Rosette is the first thing that came to mind, but heel cap is great, too!

Here’s a rosette I put together from the spalted oak firewood. What do you think?

Coasters don't work unless you leave the middle there as well...

Sounds pretty good. In fact reminds me of one of your guitars before.

Well, I like it! Jeepers, step out of the shop for a day and look what turns up. (I wonder if I stay out tomorrow what lovely thing might appear?)

If you stay out of the shop tomorrow, then probably an early weekend will appear.
