Very nice. Great glue up and the grains evolved really nicely too.

That is something else. A real eye-catcher and a lovely shape.
As Paul said the grain pattern is good too.

I’ve got to uncover my lathe and get back to turning. I am so envious of the creativity of the piece.

Very nice work. I would like to see you do a tutorial on making a piece like this. Beautiful grain patters and wood combinations. A general question: When you glue up your blank for a project like this, do you see the finished piece in your mind or does it usually change as you start to shape the piece on the lathe. The reason I ask, I have donr a couple glue ups thinking it would be really freat but a few times I have started turning and then was so dissappointed by the results that I discarded the project.
