    Another one of my pieces

    Hello All,

    This is another one of my pieces. I finished it a few month's back. It is acorn caps in tinted resin with a live oak burl collar in the same tinted resin. It has a CA finish and is about 10 inches tall and 5 inches across.

    This is a fairly labor intensive process and I have quite a bit of time invested. I suspect in the 40 hour range. I will do others but need to find the time. This is my busy time of year for my business so work comes before hobbies.

    Thanks for looking,

    Wow, that's cool-looking Alan. The colors are very eye-catching, and the form looks sweet. Are the acorn caps glued onto a substrate, or did you just mold a solid resin/acorn blank to start turning from?

    Very unique and great looking. I do not understand how you did that. One large casting block?

    Alan this is amazing work. I can't even fathom the amount of hours you have into this piece.

    Well Done!
