Outstanding piece of art Hairy. I would think that technique very difficult to pull off… and you really did it. Great job!

Thank you all!

Here it is with some Watco Danish Oil finish.

I may have confused you. This was first turned on the lathe, and the design was carved after turning. I apologize for leaving that part out when I posted this. It’s been a rough week.
