Beautiful Steve. Much better than I could do. The day is coming when I start trying bowls and such. I'm still stuck on pens for now. Great piece and nice work.

I think you did a wonderful job. Part of me thinks the base is a little small but I think it gives it good lift and a sense of lightness. Very nice use of the wood. Did you have problems with tear-out?

Thanks. didn't have many problems with tear out as if it is to soft i'll just spray some laquar on it let it dry and finish turning.I know a lot of people use ca but i've had good luck with this so till it lets me down will keep going this rount.
