I built this vessel a while back and entered it in the FWW “What have you turned lately” contest. By some miracle, I won. I would say in large part due to all of you that voted for me. Here is the link if you would like to read more about it. http://www.finewoodworking.com/item/18738/monsoon-by-bill-wyko-wins-turning-challenge I would just like to thank you all again for your vote and support. Winning this is a great honor.

Great job. If it wasn’t a great project then you wouldn’t have has so many votes. It’s very nice.

WOW!!! That is a work of art! You did a masterful job.

I am just beginning to do a little woodturning. I am learning a little of how the lathe works, and how to use standard lathe chisels. I cannot imagine doing anything like you did. You have truly exhibited great craftsmanship.

Outstanding! You have outdone anything I could dream of. I am just starting to do segmented pieces, and WAS all exited because my piece I am designing has 60 odd pieces. I can not even imagine the pataince that this took.

Congrats on the win. You vrey much deserved it.
