That is amasing! Light years ahead of my lathe skills! How fragile is something like this? I would have loved to see you lathing this, just to see how you did it. Wonderful work!

Thanks for the kind words everyone. Mike willow is a lot different to turn but I just took my time with it. Dean it was the crotch piece of the branch and that’s why you see a pith on one side. Thanks again everyone

Very nice. I am wondering how you got the wood dried so quickly? Was it green wood when you started?

Lou, amazing use of dye to highlight the grain. What a display!
