Beech turned, hollowed, dropped and broke. Needed to save the piece so I carved out the trees added copper leaf and dye. Mounted to a Box elder root burl. Stands 8 inches tall, trunks are .06 in wall thickness and the leaf area is .006 thick. Almost egg shell

Now that is what I would call saving. Brilliant piece of art Ron, what lathe speed was needed when hollowing?

A very fun piece to look at. I for one can admire and gaze at the grain in wood for hours and to marvel at what Mother Nature has created. It’s wonderful to see how we attempt to reveal this natural beauty.

You started out with a vessel and wound up with an interesting and beautiful sculpture. Remarkable save Ron. I love the colours too!

Another wonderful art piece.
Congratulations Ron.

Bob.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Bob my lathe speed is around 1000 rpm. I am not a fast turner and like the slower speeds.
Thanks for the comments
