This piece was inspired by a turning by Robert Nelson.

The pedestal is 8 1/4” tall, with a 2 1/4” base. The ‘waist’ is 7/8” across, and the top is 1 1/2” across. The sphere is dyed maple and measures 2 1/2” in diameter. Finish is 3 coats of Danish Oil, then buffed and waxed with the Beall Buffing System.

Nice piece. Did you shape it be turning off center?

Yes … it actually was turned using 5 axis’ (one center and one for each of four corners).

The sphere is a separate piece. Not sure how one would do this as a single piece, but it is an interesting concept!
