Looking good, Rob. Size and finish?
About 6-1/2" diameter. The base came from a 12/4 piece of mahogany. The finial is about 3" height. The tip is about 3/16" high and 1/16" diameter.
Oh, finish is brushed on Shellac.

Thanks, Rob. The neighbor came over today to let me know they will be taking down a large sweetgum next month. If it has lots of heartwood, do you want some turning chunks?
Yes, that would be great. Let me know when I comes down.
Good lookin', fun project Rob. Has a very antique look to it.

Looks great Rob!

Thanks all for the encouragement.
The inspiration was after watching a video on a water droplet hitting the water and creating a ripple effect. The finial is the bounce back out of the water.
