    The little one on top is partially hollow, so when you look down on it ,it seems like it is.If you look at the pic of the bottom you can see what i'm talking about.

    I'm guessing here, but did you turn the finial in 4 pieces?? Sure looks like some small intricate work turning that... I keep looking at your stuff and putting it on my to-do ... to-try to do ... list... that is a great looking piece.

    Steve, if he doesn't like that piece, there's something seriously wrong with his eyes. Awesome job, man!

    You're making me look bad, though. I already warned Robin that I'm on limited time to make my swap piece and to not expect any finials or fancy-schmancy stuff like that.

    Chuck you are right as the finial was turned in 4 pieces.It's made of what my brother called bohemian ebony. Not sure what it really is, but he got it out in the woods about20 years ago when he lived on andros island.That's what the locials called it. Vaughn you know(or at least i know)that what ever you do will be 100 times better than what i could do in my dreams.
