It’s going to take quite the flower arrangement to not look shabby in comparison to that beautiful vase.

Wowie Jim, this is a beautifully balanced piece, I love the subtle banding sections highlighted with your flawless joints, not overdone but they just add that real touch of class. The walnut legs make a real statement. Fabulous piece Mate
This has to go Top 3 with out a doubt.
Interestingly I am playing with another One leg with a curved out top on the leg, I have made about a dozen legs but just can’t crack the bottom / base right yet

Very nicely done Jim. Well balanced, and the color is terrific. Your legs also look very nice.
Well done.

I love the flow of the curves and the way the legs follow and extend the vessel curves, very cool, very creative!
