You’re always raising the bar.
I like the ‘feet’ on this one.
I pretty much like all of your work.
2 Dye 4 has been a favourite blog of mine for a long time now.
I even bought those dyes so I can “try” to copy that colour.
It’s very well done.

Nice to see your work after a long hiatus. I always look forward to your posts. I am just getting ready to take some lathe lessons from a local turner who is well recognized in my area. Don’t think I’ll ever measure up to your level of achievement, although that would be a dream of mine.

A great looking turning, thank you for your link to the dyeing using the aniline dyes. I think you may have answered a question I have for a project I am trying to work out in my head.

Your work on dyeing is amazing. For more than 2 years I’ve been watching your work and continue to be blown away by the colors and finish. I have a ways to go to get to that point. I seem to have too many distractions. This is beautiful.
