    That's a sweet one. Steve. Great piece of wood, and the form really works for me.

    Stephen that crotch came out great. I would only like to ask you to post more pics of the lead up next time.

    So many of you great turners take for granted that a newby gets the wood mounted correctly and starts from the correct side.

    I personally have wrecked many pieces because i got this issue mixed up

    How did you mount that crotch initially to turn the base? Faceplate and screws or glue block. looks like quiet a slab.

    Thanks for posting.
    cheers
