I recently noticed that Martin had posted a contest blog seeking projects that are #1 made from scrap #2 are made in 1 day and #3 balance. When I read that it had to “balance” I immediately thought about some sort of circus act. The scrap wood choice was easy too as these pieces have been laying around for quite some time. The head and base is Texas Ebony, and the plate is Sycamore. The dowel is just a dowel that came in one of my cherry tree toy kits. The wood was sent to me a long time ago by Gary, one of our fellow lumberjocks here. The finish is lacquer. I turned the plate on the lathe and carved a majority of the face with power carvers. The total time taken was ~7 hrs 20 min. It was quite the little rush job.
As always I welcome constructive criticism, positive or negative.
