Finished this piece a couple weeks ago. Since I got about as much time cutting/trimming/gluing this piece as I do turning, I figured I'd sneak it in here. Started out as a honduran mahogany plank. I cut it 3 1/8" squares. Numbered them to get them back in order. glude common pine around the edges of each one to prevent chip-out, Then turned them; 40 of them. used a template to get the curves the same. Then carefully cut the pine away on the table saw and glued them back together. Sanded to even up the seams, and finished with several coats of wipe-on poly. Had a friend cut the matting (faux leather) she works at a frame shop, then mounted it. Oh yea, made the frame too. I got frusterated when the local city hall put out a call for artist to display in the citys' public spaces, but when I spoke to them, they said they would olny take stuff that hangs on the wall. Next time I will be ready for them. The size of the object is 13x22.
