Large segmented woodturning which contains 418 individual pieces of domestic and exotic hardwoods. It is 18” in diameter and 5 1/2” in height. The woods included are bocote, hard maple, padauk, wenge, yellow heart, quartersawn spalted sycamore. The design is reminiscent of native American grain baskets. The bottom panel depicts lightning and thunder and turbulence of the skies, hence “Thunderstorm Grain Basket”.

A lot of glue, many little wood pieces, plenty of sanding, and hours of your time. But WOW! Beautiful indeed!
