I, always, like new ideas and I love this one, paticularly the black part inhanced by the red slim line. Very nice.

Nice one Pete, like the shape and the black and red stand out. Great texturing, shown better in pics 2 and 4.
I didn’t think you would have time with the cup final coming up. How did you get the shape?

Pete,
You are always doing work that is on the edge. This one is no exception it is beautifully different, the shape and texturing are outstanding.

Thanks for sharing

Pete

This piece caught my eye, so I had to check out the rest of your projects and they are all very eye appealing.

Keep up the great work,

Another beautiful and unique piece from you Pete. I would describe it as “wood as art”. Great job

Pete, don’t tell me this thing is hollow too. Everything you do belongs on a puzzle page! Really remarkable.
Someday I’d like to see a short video of you turning one of these impossible pieces. BTW, how do you “texture with paste”? It looks like a good technique with many applications for other types of work.
