Ronald, this is an outstanding piece and looking at it in a photograph it’s hard to gage the size. It must have been a real challenge. The beautiful wood and your fine craftsmanship has given rise to a magnificent eye catcher. Congratulations.

Awesome Ron.

-- 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.

A tricky piece of turning with this one Ron, I can imagine that wing flying at speed & keeping your distance :)

Make a great gallery piece, well done

Tool introduction and exiting the piece is so vital. One mistake and this piece becomes ruins
