This is a continuation of my study on finials. This hollow form vessel is turned from end grain, fiddle back maple. It measures approximately 5.5 inches tall by 4.5 inches wide. It is finished with aniline dyes.

All comments, especially critiques, are welcomed and appreciated.

As always, great job! For me, I like this style of finial better. Those tall skinny ones scare me ;)

That’s vessel has amazing figure. Lovely.
I’d like to see an upper stem atop the bead.

Merry Christmas.

Fantastic turning as usual. Your finials are progressing nicely. This one is very well matched to the vessel. It could have a spire above the ball but it does not need it.

As allways, your coloring is outstanding. The way your vessels very not only with the grain, but in pattern that you create is just breathtaking.

Keep up the inspirational work.

Joe: I like this Finale better than the tall spindly ones.

Is the finale two different woods or two different dyes?

It looks like your getting the hang of the finial stuff. I have been doing some small ones for little bird house ornaments that I didn’t post but the round shape is not that easy. Very nice vessel.
