    Cool! I'm sure the photo makes it look like its going faster than it really is, but I think I'd have a large steel net/cage up between me and one of those pieces as it's spinning

    To Ted and Mrs. Ted, thank you. I have been looking for a good big turning to show my students. Greatly appreciate the link.

    The problems with pieces like that is figuring out where to store them.

    Very cool work. The sanding must be an ordeal.

    I'd be afraid to turn a piece with that many void, can't imagine turning something that large like that. Amazing, you'd want a real steady hand.

    Vaughn I'm guessing power sands

    That is, as everyone else seems to say, amazing. That is my kind of art.
    Thanks for showing.

    Enjoy,

    Interesting. Must need a very large wall to hang it and make it look visually appealing. Large turned items used to fascinate me but now I appreciate smaller pieces much more. I think it is harder to make smaller pieces, particularly segmented items.
