This is a maple HF turned 1/8 inch thick then pierced with the outline of leaves. After I stippled some red and yellow lacquer on the inside so looking through the leaf openings it would appear autumn looking then gave it a dark brown gel stain. Also this was turned pith to pith style.

Always exciting to get a notification that you have posted a project my friend.
You never disappoint, and this is certainly another example of your extraordinary talent.
The turning is beautiful and the coloring on the inside adds a lot to the splendid leaves.
Really love your stuff.

Tom, this is great work, as usual. I like the graceful shape and the color on the inside is a technique that works well with your pierced carvings. This is an all together beautiful job. Thanks for sharing with us.

Very nice Tom. Hollow forms are something that intrigue me but sadly I have chosen to pick my battles and HF lost to marquetry. I envy you for mastering both.

Lovely work Tom. The piercings add an elegant touch.
