It’s a beautiful piece of wood and you did a nice job on it.

A very graceful form and a rich brown walnut colour, lovely.
Did you encounter any tear-out when cutting against the grain with the D-way beading tool?

Great turning, I’ve got a beading tool but have never used it to this extent. Wonderful.

Thank everyone for the positive comments.

vipond33- the walnut was very dry and the D-Way tool cut cleanly with a slight rocking motion.
