Hey - this is looking quite promising already.  :)

Are you using Bezier splines?  What are you going to be using the curve for?
Controlling the color_map of the wood pigment pattern? The geometry of the wood?
 Both?

Maybe you can look at Ed Hynan's EPspline lathe/sor editor program for some
inspiration.

It's really nice that you're writing it in Java - will we be able to try this
out by running the applet in a web browser?


My wood pigment patterns have always been fairly simplistic, and I'm sure I can
learn a lot of things that I should have been doing for a long time now, just by
seeing the progress of your development renders and relevant scene code.
