    I'm with Larry, No clue on how you did it, but you did a great job! And the finish really makes it pop!

    Great job Neil on all. So what's the secret to the spirals?

    Cause in the "Salons", you'd be getting your golden locks coiffed?

    Platter ain't bad either.

    Thanks for all your generous comments, spirals, well in this case carved by hand, using CL which is very soft made the job of carving much easier. Laying them out is via the indexing on the lathe with a compass and pencil, all very low tech.
