Sea Shell I made from walnut lumber that came from a 100 year old barn down here in SC. Came out very nice if i must say so myself. It is a segmented piece of 32 pieces, using Steve Garrison’s techniques. A lot of sanding goes into making these. I think I logged in over 20 hours just for this one piece. It’s approximate measurements were only 5.75’ long x 5.75 wide x 4.75 high when it was finished, less the base I made for it.

That’s a great piece! I’m going to try that someday, I hope it’s close to that good.

That’s impressive – no doubt about it.
