That’s beautiful, and the finish looks like it is encased in glass, very good work.

Beautiful Joe, I’ve begun doing enough hollow form turning to really appreciate what you do with a basic form and execute such a beautiful finish. Kudos. Your work is just plain beautiful.

Thank you Trifern, I have been a long time admirer of your work and recently used your technique on a project. The result was pretty good for a first time. I am working on a few more samples and will post them when they are finished. Won’t be nearly as nice as yours but I am going for the “A” for effort award. When I take people to this site I always go right to your page, never fails to get lots of ooohs and aahhhs.
Thanks again for the great work you are truly inspiring!

WOW, that is a stunning piece of art, trifern ! You are very lucky to have such a fine block of tiger maple for it! I love working with TM, but they’re getting harder and harder to find. I’m almost out of stock on TM!
