Thanks to all for your kind comments. To answer Tool Junky, the time on this project would be a guess on my part because of the four different elements. With that said, approximatlly 30 days with varing hours per day. As far as the process, one is the lost wood + hollowing, sectionioning and re-assembeling, carved, Colorado dye then lacquered. The large one, is a product of using a blank that was cut into four sections then glued together and then. turned & hollowed, seperated, carved embellished and then colored dyed and lacquer fineness. The small pod is a simple turning with attached stem. The platter was turned, power carved embellished and finished. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it.
