That’s very cool. That took some real fore thought to plan. I’d like to see the vessel before you carved it to get an idea just how you did it. I can’t tell from the picture, are the veins in the leaves carved or burned?

Boy! This is amazing to look at, the different laminations seem to almost float.

What do you use to carve once it’s turned?

Impresive! I wonder how it didn’t crack while turning.

I just saw your oak trees one and it was amazing just like this.

You need to do a blog/video on how you do this!
