This one sat in my shop without the carved “roots” for over a year before I decided to just go for it. It is ash, and if I remember, about 7×7 or so. Again, this was turned on center, then carved. I used to have way more pics of all my older work, but a computer crash with no backup ate it all.

Looks great. I thought the top was a separate piece until I looked closer.

Look at the movement and flow of this! Man!
Love the way you allowed the knot/burl on the right side to gaze back at you.

Hey folks, thanks! Another newer fellow, Jon (with the really cool segmented/complicated/impossible turnings), told me about this place. I’ve been stuck in here since, reading, and reading, and reading….ha

Maybe I’ll take more pics of this soon or something. It actually has two “eyes” of grain on one side of it. This was one of my first carving attempts on a hollow form and I learned a lot. Like just how hard it is to get to the underside of what you want to be a wavy rim.

I’ll keep em uploading. I figure I can hang out at this site for a good while without running out of new info, if ever, since it seems to be really active.

These are awesome! keep’em coming! There’s nothing better than finally finishing something on the shelf! Maybe sometimes they just need the wait. I love the movement you add to the turned pieces! I am afraid of the lathe.

The more I look at this and the other carved vase the more I like and appreciate them. Fantastic jobs both. Glad you posted.

Another outstanding piece! I like it a lot. The top appears to be darker than the rest. Did you stain it, Dave?

Thanks everyone! @LittlePaw, no I didn’t, just a trick of the light. With this piece, I had used a dark amber poly finish, of the cheap variety, maybe Bullseye brand or something. Anyways, I coated it down, and it made it look terrible and dark. So I completely sanded it away, even in all the little crevices. But no, it’s all the same color, and all one solid piece.
