This was made for the president’s challenge at my local wood turners club. The challenge was to turn an ear ring holder. This is turned from box elder and is 9” x 5”. Nothing special, just wanted to meet the challenge.

Joe, I agree with Glen, except I was thinking mushroom cloud :)

Anyway it looks great. I love the color variation. How is the top attached to the base…or is it?

Martin, I turned a small tenon on the base, drill a small hole in the top, and glued them together with CA.

Thanks for all the kind remarks. I appreciate them all.
