Very nice work, Chas! And that is some neat looking wood, for sure!
Another great one Chas!
That piece looks so different from each angle, a LOT going on in that piece of wood!

I saw the collar, but where's the horse?????
I do not have the patience for something like that, but really envy those of you with those talents.
Beautiful piece, Chas! I love the collar.
I may be lost but I'm making good time!

Chas that is a beauty. I really like the collar.

To succeed in life, you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone and a funnybone.
Very well done Chas!
Neigh Lad your laughing up the wrong tree.
As far as patience is concerned it took no longer than 4 hrs total, that included preparing the pictures for this little sequence yesterday to help a new starter to bore a hole in a vase. Finishing was about an hour this morning, mostly waiting for sealer/lacquer to dry.
Chas thanks for the link to the "little sequence." It gave me an idea for trying a HF myself. I always thought you needed some sort of hollowing rig to tackle one.
