That looks great. Was it turned most of the way, then carved with a rotary tool or something to make the feet?

Thank you Allen! A rotary tool would have been nice… hell, carving tools would have been nice :-) but I don’t have any…. I used a coping saw to remove the bulk of the material, and a block and various grits of sandpaper to shape the feet… I’ll try to post some pics in the comments

Real nice job, hats of for the patient manual carving of the feet, the feet add a real elevation to the piece with the xtra height.
well done

Yep that’s the hard way for removal , but by the looks of the end product, who gives a shit, the vessel is a beaut, and worth ANY effort ! Very nice ! Class Act !
