I finished this project back in November, but it wasn’t until this past weekend I was able to get together with a photographer friend to get some nice pictures done.

This piece stands 12-3/4” tall and has a 9” diameter. There are 972 segments in total in this piece. The three sections were all built seperately and are secured together with a carriage bolt that is hidden in the base.

all comments welcome

thanks guys, your comments are greatly appreciated.
This piece is made of pine, i used the early american minwax stain and gloss wipe on poly for a finish.

to answer your question Lew… I haven’t decided yet. I’m not opposed to selling it.

It is definitely gallery quality.

My question is why you couldn’t find somewhere on the bottom to use up 28 more segments? And, who counted them to begin with?

If they had a chair at the gallery, I would be there a while just staring at it.
