Very good looking starburst, you definitely must have stayed calm and intense on this project, and you
either love woodturning, or you are a masochist. Sometimes I am not sure which is the main attraction with
my lathe. Thank you for sharing.

Im lucky enough to have seen this piece in person because Jim was kind enough to bring it over to the house just after it was finished- the piece is even more impressive up close- great work exceptional talent-

One of the keys to good segmented work is tight joinery and you aged this one Jim. Can hardly see any glue lined. Great job. Do you belong to the segmented wood turners forum?
