This hollow form globe of Norfolk Island Pine is 13” tall and 14” diameter. I was able to capture 3 levels of the limb knots and it shows the star pattern on both ends.

I love the figure in Norfolk pine and this shows it well. What is your finishing process for these?

Absolutely beautiful
Thanks for sharing.


-- 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.

The finish is sanding to 1200 and finishing with multiple coats of tung oil. Thanks for your comments.
