This hollow form vessel reminds me of a turquoise vein that has weathered. It is 8.75 inches tall and is 4.25 inches wide and is turned from spalted maple. It is finished with aniline dye and wipe-on poly.

All comments, especially critiques, are welcomed and appreciated.

-- My favorite piece is my last one, my best piece is my next one.

Joe, nice work. I really like the orientation of the grain and the dye looks great.

Joe, beautiful job…(I’m totally unqualified to even think about anything critical). The combination of turquoise and the spalting/striped maple give a very cool effect.

Thanks for posting it.

“Hey Joe, where ya goin with that gun in your hand” as Jim Hendrix used to sing. Beautiful again, Joe. Hows the traveling turning doing, and answer the mans question, where do you get the great pieces you turn. You just have a pile of them in your barn, right? Or don’t you talk to us little people now? LOL
