    Spalted Pecan HF/vase

    Endgrain Pecan log with a little bit of everything, spalting, worm poo, cracks and chip outs. 9" diameter by 12" tall, buffed gel poly finish. Did some burning around the opening to try to blend the chip outs.

    Travis, sometimes your incredible work provides some great motivation for a mediocre turner like me. But then when you post something like this, it makes me wonder how much scrap iron (about 500 lbs of Oliver lathe) is selling for these days. Man that is a beautiful piece of work! One of your best in my opinion!

    By Jove, I think he's getting the hang of it.

    Travis, that's gorgeous. Nailed it on all counts, IMHO.

    Curt, we can list our lathes together as a "two-for-one" sale.

    Outstanding work, Travis! This is absolutely stunning.

    That is ONE DEEP HOLLOW!

    Travis,

    That is very nice. How did you do the spirals on the collar? Were those burned freehand?

    What a beautiful piece. If some people only knew what it takes to make a piece like this, they would sell their lathes. Like I said before, you get all the good wood. GREAT JOB as always.

    Thanks everyone. Alex, I used a coil of nichrome wire in a woodburning pen for the branding.
