i made this over the weekend and felt i had to post it after reading joes interview. i am always amazed at the forms he makes and i hope some day my stuff is close to as good as his. this is a green turning of ash, it is an end grain turning about 6 inchs tall and 6 inchs across at it’s widest point, the walls are 1/4 thick, finished with tungoil and beeswax. hope you like it and congrats on being in the e-mag joe.

Magnificient…..The grain is fantastic…it fits the contours of the piece…Well done! I think you should be very proud of how this one turned out!

I think Joe has inspired alot of the turners on LJ – He sets the bar high for all of us – His hollows are extraordinary…and the coloring and finish is superb….I enjoyed reading the interview…and he definitely deserves the credit. Someday, I too would love to produce projects that are even close to his level.

Roper,
It has all been said already. Magnificent figure in this turning, and the natural finishing, just sets it off for me. Congratulations on an excellent piece. Keep on keeping on!
