    Very nice work, Max. Not only is the wood very pretty, the forms on both pieces look excellent. Is cherry wood something you can get locally, or does it have to be imported into Italy?

    Both are excellent. If I had to pick one as my favorite then I'd pick the one on the left.

    Max you got two really nice pieces there. I might have to copy your vase as my little bro wants one and yours looks like it will fit the bill very nicely.
