Very nice work. I have no idea how you fit the rings together so well, and the segments add another degree of complexity. The center grain is really neat.

Any problems with different rates of expansions and contractions with face and end grans glued together?

Hi guys
Thanks for your interest
The wood I used is all quite ancient and therefore there is no problem of contraction. As far as fitting the rings together there are no tricks, just a lot of patience. It took me about 50 hours to do this one. Out here where I live time has little value. Passion counts a lot

Beautiful work. I like your projects with olive , it has inimitable in its beauty wood grain. And time has little value if you love that you make.
