    Nothing to "C" from here, and my only "C" is...Wow! That's great work, Steve.

    OK, on a second look, I think maybe the base of the pedestal on the smaller one could be a bit thinner. It seems a bit heavy visually in proportion to the rest of the piece. That said, it still has great lines that go well with the total package.

    Thanks guys. Vaughn i agree that the one pedestal is a little fat. It was the first one i did, and at the time i didn't see it. then i turned the next one and saw it but was to late buy then.

    Nice work and nice wood. Making hollow forms is going to be my next new venture.
