I just completed this off-centered, off-axis woodturning. It is 11” in diameter and is carved with the Japanese icon/word “Happiness” in the center. Finished with anilines dyes and lacquer.

the eccentric center reminds me of Doug Fishers N.W. native designs ..very cool.. & of course, intriguing.

It’s beatiful; congratulations on a job well done.
