I am out in the shop working on the process piece and I just raised the grain on the inside of the piece for the final sanding. While I am waiting for it to dry thought I would post this piece that is donated to our local Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation dinner. A friend of mine dropped off some Mulberry that was full of nails so I came up with this. It is a small hollow suspended in copper. I have patinaed the copper with a couple different acids and a tourch. The turning is 8 by 4 inches. The copper is under tension so the piece rocks for a long time when you start it going back and forth.

Pretty cool piece. Especially the rocking part. That will keep some CEO busy at his desk. Nice work.
