Another Hubble Telescope inspired piece. This hollow form is turned from end grain maple. It measures 7 inches by 4.5 inches and is finished with aniline dyes and lacquer. All comments are welcomed.

Thanks everyone.

Scott, I typically turn to about .25 inches. It depends on the form, size and wood. Some of the highly figured wood has some pretty wild and stubborn grain.
