Another beauty Joe. I like the feet idea – was that due to unbalance or a planned addition? I have had a few vessels that got a little top heavy….a few so much that I had to make a stand of some sort….I have seen some folks turning and adding additional pieces to their turnings.

The wood grain is spectacular…the sapwood looks like a reflection of light to the camera. There really is a lot going on in there with those swirls and color changes….I like the finish…the satin finish was the way to go…too much gloss would have made it look too busy.

Nice as always. If possible I would like to see some of the detail on the foot. Could you post a picture of that?

Beautifully turned and I especially like the feet.

Nice work as always…..... Love the feet! I would love to be able to look over your shoulder as you turn these things and see what tools you are using and how. I just can’t decide based on catalog pictures which hollow form turning chisels to get, they’re expensive enough and my budget small enough that I can’t just buy something and try it. Keep ‘em commin’.

Looks like a different pot from each side…. I like the concentric circles.
