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

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 !
