15 inches high and 10 1/2 diameter,296 pieces. this took me 5 weeks, longest ever for a piece. I first cut all blocks then 6 blocks for leaves in each ring went to the bandsaw,cut apart then put veneer in and glued back together. I then put the rings together and turned then carved the piece.

Jim your work is of such a high standard & will no doubt encourage many to try to push themselves a bit harder, this is another faboulous piece of patient turned carving. Beautiful :)

Beautiful work – but so far beyond the scope of my patience and understanding that it hurts to look at it.

WOW…The minds that these pieces are created from blows me away!
I sit at a computer all day and at morning break this is the site I check out first. I want to get a piece of wood in my hands!
