I posted this a while back and have been trying to decide on optional bases to show the pointed bottom. Ended up in the “to hard bin” so decided to suspend it on legs held with cut down rose head copper nails. Also replaced the top finial.
I like it better as it has lightened up the base & give a better flow overall.
I have included a pic of the earlier effortto compare
would appreciate any comments.

Ah, Pete! That is a great success. It completely changes the quality look of the piece, and elevates it to ‘art.’ Very, very well done.

You’re awfully hard on yourself Pete. I think they both look great but the newer one has a flare that was perhaps a little hidden before. Subtle improvement but worth doing. You have a very good eye.

Pete,

This is really beautiful. The first design was very nice, but your revision puts it “over the top”! Thanks for sharing.

I agree with Barbs the new version is extraordinary. Nevertheless, the older base looked good to.

I like this version much better the legs thanks the piece to a new level and the new finial goes much better now if I had the guts to try to suspend a piece on legs also like the section of sap wood you left on

The new finial I think looks great w/ the overall design. Granted both the before and the after look good ;)
