I had purchased anew carving tool for my angle grinder and thought I would just try something real quick to try the tool out. Well it didn’t turn out to be quick as none of the other things have eitherand it is still not finished due to I don’t have a purpose for it. But it did take some interesting pictures maybe someone has an idea for finishing it? One of the hardest things to deal with was the contrasting hardness between the grain (I hate Redwood for carving).

As far as I’m concerned, it’s finished. And it is most delicate and sophisticated in nature. BEAUTIFUL!!!

Roger,

Once again, your work knocks me out. I can’t tell the scale of it—what are the dimensions?

Thanks for posting this beautiful piece of art.

Thanks everyone! caocian the size is roughly 12”-14” tall.
Andy the tool I was refering to is a tungsten carbide structured tooth dish. Mfg. names of Kutzall or Typhoon, they do a great job of rapid removal and creating dust.

I think its beautiful. It would make a nice lamp base.

Leave it as is. It’s beautiful, so simple, yet intricate. Great photography. Mike

I love it, it is done in my book. What I love about it is it brings up the question of how did he do that right away and the fact that it makes the wood look like it can bend and flow. Is this made with one piece of wood, it seems too perfect to be so but maybe it is?

I’m glad this one came around in shuffle. Really interesting. If you continue to chase the spiral, does the wood between the spirals just carve away?
