Great work on this one Ron, sure are multi talented with the details. Has always puzzled me why work like this never gets a mention in the daily top 3 when a lot of crappy pieces do. Is there a story here.

Bob this site is not for the woodturners. If you look at the daily top 3 it is mostly flat woodworking that gets the attention. Most people here are flat wood workers. They don’t even take a look at turned pieces. That is ok. On a bad day I make it to a top 3

One addition to the story of this piece is it started as a 45 pound log. It is now 1 pound 9 ounces. Too light for its size.

Could be the reason Ron but then again I have seen some ordinary turned projects making the daily 3.
Would be nice to see work like yours recognized. Hey that is a lot of wood shavings, down from 45 pound
but well worth the effort.

Good one Ron,
This beautiful to the extreme.
Congtatulations.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Nice work Ron! It’s amazing how a carving can be simply enhanced with pyrography, ink and paint. RH

I’ll have to agree with you on the round stuff on here Ron, but us turners can still appreciate each other, great looking piece.
