Joe, Your work never stops amazing me. How in the world did you cut all those groves or are they spirals? Had to take awhile! Nice Project, you shouldn’t have any problem selling this one.
Thanks for sharing

Working on hollow forms, I have been turning as end grain. I assume your hollow forms are end grain too—am I right? I don’t see any pith so they must. Doesn’t that produce checking at the bottom (the top would be cored out, so not a problem)? Love your work, and follow every post.

Nice carving Joe! Reminds me of a beehive or some sort of giant seed pod. Either, way good job!!

Funk is good for the mind to let it all go!. It looks like a bee hive. Did you use a Fordom tool on it?

Remarkable work. I like the randomness of the ridges. I hope you make more in this line, and combine this with your dyeing skills. Always look forward to seeing your turnings.
