This pod is turned from maple using the lost wood process. It measures approximately 7 inches long, 4 inches tall, and 5.5 iches wide. There are marbles in the hollow cavity so the pod rattles when picked up.

All comments and critques are welcomed and appreciated.

-- My favorite piece is my last one, my best piece is my next one.

Wow. Really nice. I’m old enough to have it remind me of “The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers” from the 50s.
