Nice looking wood…... But the form looks a little unstable.
Bet it was fun hollowing it out through a little hole like that….......... Nice job .

A lot of character in that piece! I agree – it looks like it took a lot of skill and patience. Clearly not a first turning project!

thank you for the kind comments
toyguy: the form is perfectly stable the base is about 1 3/4” in diameter- it just looks deceptive because of how i tuck the form under.
Roper: the hole which this piece was hollowed through is 3/4” in diameter- the finish is organoil oil

A great turning at first glance I thought it was a globe of another planet. Beautiful Art.

Not only great work George, but wonderful wood too. A total winner. Judging from your byline I can see that you don’t live in Norway!
