My latest project I called “Water Jug”. Based on a Navajo water jug. Used Lamination pro for the feature ring design. Cut my segments using a segeasy sled. Vessel features elements of Ray Allen, Malcolm Tibbetts and my “creativity”. I used Birds eye and Curly maple, Bublinga, Bloodwood, Zebra wood, Katalox, Oak and Ebony. Vessel is approx. 8 in. in dia by 9 inches high. Hope you like it.

I appreciate what you have done here. Beautiful work. Having read books by Tibbetts and Allen. I think they would be smiling at your accomplishments.

John, that is just Stunning, I love the colour contrast and design.
The feature ring is beautiful.
Great piece and something to be very proud of.
Thank you for sharing.
