No 2 ordered, if the lady had had her way it would have ended up 3 foot tall or more but I convinced her it would look damn rediculious, she was more than happy with the final result and I have the money in my pocket. Consists of 216 segments of Baltic Pine Plywood plus base and top. A fun job and she still wants another one bigger and taller.

That is a great one, too. Did you have to use a steady rest on something that long? If not, you probably will on that next 36” one!! It will look good- just make everything bigger in perspective to this one!!

Nice job on it, Bob….................Jim

Thanks for the comments, enjoyed doing this bugger. JIm, had a chuck both ends for this one but sure a steady rest will be needed for the next one.
Merry X;mas all.
