All critiques are welcomed.

Joe, yet another beauty! I like everything about it…wood choice, shape, color and the natural voids.

Thanks for posting it.

Joe, this is another gorgeous piece. I agree with Charlie. I haven’t a clue where you are putting all these pieces. I know that turning is addictive but it seems that you need to take a break and work on some display cabinets to showcase these. :)
