    Nice contrasting wood. Pleasing overall shape. Looks good.

    Very nice, John. The cherry in this piece is lighter than most of the cherry I've seen on this side of the pond.

    Thank you for all your comments
    Vaughn the wood is from the cherry blossom(don't know which one) and not a fruit tree I don't know if this would make a difference. It's nice to turn but warps quite when drying
