I like this very much. Nice little turning….... and nice finial. If I were to change anything; it would be the foot on this form. To my eye, it tappers a bit too much leaving a very small foot and makes the piece look a bit on the top heavy / tipsy side…...... Just my opinion.

Thanks for all the great feed back guys. Toyguy it is funny you say that because it is the one thing about the piece i don’t like. i did leave extra weight at the bottom so the piece is stable , but the foot is just a little off.

Fantastic turning, it amazes me that you can turn those so small. That is some coin your using scaling too.

Have your say...
