I made this beauty some time ago but forgot to post it, and its a favorite of mine. Maple and purpleheart with thin white and black veneer strips as accents, its sit on a solid carved three legged base. At 10 3/4” high and 7 1/2’ at widest point in contains 132 segments plus all the veneer pieces, totaling 328 separate small parts. its turned to 1/4” thickness. took me quite awhile to complete but well worth the effort. Need to thank Ray Allen for his instructional book used as a guide and inspiration.

Very well done. My only critique is that I would not have added the three legs to this design.
