As a novice turner I have followed your work here on LJ and I am always amazed at the quality and artistry. This one really stands out and is just stunning. The finish and fiddle back figure reminds me of views of the earth from space. Thanks for the posts and inspiration.

I really love the color and finish on this one, Joe. It’s so smooth it looks loke a freshly-polished brand-new bowling ball.

Beautifully turned and such a striking depth to the Maple. The dye certainly adds to the overall effect. In a word ‘exotic’.
