4 inch sphere turned with the Carter Perfect Sphere tool. Hollowed, pierced and some copper leaf and patina. The tree side is what I started with and did not like it. The base was an after thought as the sphere was so light that I had to do something to hold it in place. The base is also Ginko pierced and has a small magnet to hold the sphere on.

Classy looking piece Ron, it has a lovely glow to it did you hollow thru a plug?
What sort of piercing gear do you use, nsk?

Thanks for sharing.


-- 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.

Pete this piece was cut apart hollowed and then glued back together. I am not using a NSK. I am using a dental drill that I bought here locally in Grand Rapids. We have a company that rebuilds dental drills. This has a rotating connector at the hose and makes it easy to use. It is a turbo and runs without lubrication. It runs about 450,000 rpm and cost about the same as the NSK
