I have been working on this project for several weeks. I have had a couple of times when I just had to walk away before something got broke. It has 3 types of wood, cherry, holly, and box elder. The base, rim, and both finials are cherry, the legs are holly and the body is box elder. it has a spray lacquer finish and is sanded to 400 grit. Comments are welcome good or bad. Thanks for looking. Russell

Your screen name is “Woodkiller” but from what I have seen with this and the other projects in your gallery, I would say you bring the wood to life

Really great looking wood turning. It reminds me of a UFO

A wonderful creation. Very cool imagination at work here. I have to admit I am a bit stumped as to its size. I’m guessing somewhere between 3 to 12 inches. Pretty bold guess huh?

Very nice. I can’t see the inside of the cover. Is there a tendon around the bottom of the cover to keep it centered in place or can the cover slip around on the rim of the bowl…....Not that it matters since the piece is so visually amazing it should only be seen and not touched in my opinion.

Very nice work. I saw this while I was at work, and wanted to comment on it first thing when I got home.
I like the finial on the lower section of the bowl. Is it connected to the base?
Does the bowl just rest on the three supports, or is it attached?
The turning is outstanding, thanks for showing it.

Sorry, I can’t think of any bad comments, you will just have to settle for the good ones.
