Got these two finished today. The Zig-Zag one has 273 pieces, is 6inches tall and 8.75inches diameter. If you look closely you will see that beside the zig-zag there is a wave in the feature ring.
The spiral piece is more ball shaped and is 8inches tall and 8.5inches in diameter. it has only 122 pieces.
They are both sanded to 400 and finished with Wipe-on-Poly.
Thanks for looking and I hope you like them.
C & C welcome.
Bob.

That’s too much, Bob. What do you use for hollowing?

Mark, I have to admit that I cheated, they are both made in two halves.

WOW squared!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Those are amazing pieces, Bob. I love them!!
Not cheating at all!! I do all my hollow forms from the bottom because I don’t take a chance on going in through a small hole! It is what ever the creator decides!! Excellent work!!!!!!!!!

Two beauties Bob, great feature ring and finish on No 1 and the ball type is real ripper piece. Like them.
Nothing is cheating in wood turning Bob the results are what matters. Great finish with the wipe on poly, don’t go stuffing them up by trying WD40, my one is still holding it’s shine.

Nice work Bob! They both look beautiful. I must say that I agree with Jim and Bob’s comment. It’s not cheating it’s whatever you decide.

Great work here Bob, It is a shame that the one went flying, I believe that i am a bit partial to the second one.

Very nice work Bob. The color combo alone make them stand out. It took a minute , but I found the wave. Cool.

Both are stunning, I had a hard time spotting the wave, too. The poly looks great and I really like the shape and the squareness of opening in the zig-zag hollow form.
