interesting piece for sure. Looks very well done from the pictures. Not too sure about the feet, but this is the kind of thing that usually grows on me….......... Nice job Pete.

Nice work, Pete. I like the feet… ...this piece sort of looks like a UFO. The burning and carving add a nice touch, too.

Nice one Pete. #4 looks like a prototype three point hydrofoil, maybe to run you quickly out to Waiheke on a Sunday afternoon.

Great piece. I especially like the ‘extensions’ on the feet; hadn’t seen that idea before. It adds to the look, and in a good way. The carved-in burning is nice, too. And your treatment of the underside is great. I’d call that piece a fine success!

Thanks all for your very kind comments, Brian just trying something different and didn’t want it sitting on the tips, still playing with suspension/feet.
Paul the weather here is perfect for a Waiheke trip at present, we have had months of fine weather, now in Autumn & still 24d every day blue skies
Not sure about flying Roz :)

Absolutly marvolous how you can work the wood so gracefully and give it even more beauty! Wow!
