This is a continuation of the Hubble Telescope series. This piece took a different direction in color. The hollow form was turned from end grain maple and measures 9 inches by 5 inches. It is finished with aniline dyes and Waterlox.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Honestly, another in the hubble series? Joe, you do such great work and I love the dyes you use. But when are you going to do a blog for us guys that want to learn your process? Or is it a secret process you do not want to share?

Another beautiful job.

Joe, this is a stunning piece. Staring into it does create that ‘space adventure’ theme. I see a black hole, an exploding nova, etc. Great job.
