Very nice turning. The walnut is beautiful. Nice job on the segmented rim also. Try getting a little thinner with each turning. I look forward to seeing your next. Thanks for sharing Rj.

Very nice non-conventional turning, with interesting grain in the Wanut. What is the finish? It is not always necessary to turn real thin. Depends on the impression you want, and when the piece tells you to stop. I like it!

Great job with the tight joints, one little loose spot can really show up when you turn it, yours look great. Thanks.

It is beautiful. Looks like the finish really came out good.
