Exceptional idea and lathe-manship. I’m fascinated and grossed out at the same time. I don’t know why exactly but it gives me the heeby-jeebies.

Thanks, for all of the positive comments! Yes the shop smelled great while working with this.
Ron – I used clear two part 5 min epoxy. Turned ok, dulls the tools very quick.

That’s awesome John! I had to study it for a while to just to absorb all of the details presented by the walnuts. That is a very unique piece, thanks for sharing.
