    The HF looks nice, and the finial is nice too, but I can see details that I suspect you wanted to change. Kind of hard to make any changes when someone else owns it, huh? A happy owner is one of the most important parts of a turned piece, and it sounds like you nailed this one.

    Stephen, can you tell me the approx deminsions of that. I sometimes have a hard time judging if these are small or large pieces. I think this is a very nice form. Looks great!

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Yea i didn't like the way it sat in the opening. i made the opening with a resess just for the finial, but it just didn't flo with what was there. If that makes sence.

    Tom it was aprox 4" tall x 7 1/2 wide, And the finial was about 2 1/2" tall. I think. These are the other ones she took. the one cherry with holly that i showed not long ago, and a old piece that i really liked, and had been keeping for my self. It was hickory natural edge.
