I don’t know, Ron. It looks kinda dirty to me. ;-)

Just kidding, of course. That’s a gorgeous burl, and you brought out the best in it.

I can’t even start imagining how you can turn such a piece of wood… it looks awesome, great job!

Yes it was a fun piece to turn. It did do a short stint at the Grand Rapids Art Museum last year.

You did a fine job with this beautiful piece of wood. It’s certainly and eye catcher.

This is an incredible piece of turning, especially since you kept it in one piece.

Bob the scary was when I started to hollow. I knew there was going to be a large negative space and that was part of the design. I have done a few more since then.
