Michelle I am surprised. I always look forward to your comments and your work. I hope you can find the right dimension and a different look at my non cactus piece LOL

Wow Ron…You just keep turning out amazing pieces, this one is awesome. Some day when I get a heck of a lot of experience under my belt I would like to try turning some Alabaster. Nothing fancy like that just a basic shape, it would be quite the experience. Thanks for sharing.

Aussie Dave please know that when you turn this stuff it creates a dust much like drywall dust. It is everywhere in the shop. I turn some of it outside as to minimize the dust It is fun to turn and easy to turn. It does not have any knots or bark inclusions. It will not crack later. I does chip easy. Give it a try. Yes it is inexpensive to buy to.The cost comes in shipping

Beautiful… I have always wanted to turn alabaster. If I lived in alabaster country that’s probably all I would ever turn.
