Great eye catcher. Nice piece of turning.

I love how the grain gradually wraps around the piece. It just makes you want to turn the thing!

Great job capturing the grain, with its movement and contrasting color scheme.

Funny how many-a-piece might be lost to all that granite in the background, but this piece still seems to hold down center stage.

Nice job!
