Cedar pierced to Ginko

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?
cheers

-- 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.

That is great looking piece Ron, like your piercing skills, did you use the dremel or whatever?

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
