    A little of everything

    I probably got a little carried away with trying to incorporate too many things into one piece here. But I was experimenting with a few things, an end grain winged form, some off center eccentric turning, and a natural bark edged pedestal base. So this is a natural bark edged lidded winged vessel with offset eccentric pedestal and finial. Oh, and it's all scrub oak, 14" tall, 5" across.

    Now that's what I call an experiment that turned out really great.
    Well done.

    Your experiment was a great success. I love the natural-edge base.

    Wow Curt, as soon as you fix the wobble in your lathe that's causing those crooked finials, you'll be doing great.

    Very cool piece. I agree that you have a lot of things going on at once in this one, but they are all very nicely done, and seem to work together.

    Well i'm still on the side lines with all this off center stuff. As far as your work you can't do any better like the natural edge just not sure i care for the off center turnings. Now that's just me so that don't mean much.
