No need to embellish

I sometimes consider adding some sort of embellishment on my next project–a band of texturing or pyrography, perhaps.

And then I get something with grain like this…

…and I realize that anything I could possibly add would be like gluing sequins on a lily; it would only detract from the beauty that’s inherent in the material.

Work in progress, American elm.
