They are all fantastic Ron, this one really appeals to me. Love the colours, the open face, and the bark. The shape and finish really set it off!

I think I will give up turning after seeing these. OMG.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice piece, Ron. It looks to be a real challenge to hold that inside shape with that big of an open area. Nice work on it!!

Beautiful turning, but shame on you for only giving us one photo. :)

The only thing that would make this more amazing is if you could somehow fill this with amber or some other clear liquid. It’s an amazing display piece though! I wouldn’t hide this in storage if I were you – I bet people would be shocked and impressed that you made it!
