These are some nautilus shells that I have been working on lately. The segmented ones are a real brain trip…they don’t usually come out like I expect. Ambrosia maple, walnut, and eastern red cedar. Finished sometimes with wipe on poly, sometimes with lacquer. The bases are little chunks of cast off burls from turnings, and the support pins are ebony.

Your work is always a pleasure to see. It must be hard to match up in all that movement. Great work!

Wow- Spectacular.

It certainly has the ‘How did he do that?!’ factor.
