    That figure pattern is beautiful. The ring patterns of the sapwood and the knot being orthogonal to each other add quite a bit of visual interest.

    Once again, it took me a minute to figure out that you hadn't posted pics of two pieces.

    Very inspirational!

    Aw I bet it has an ugly foot........ right?

    Man, that is just beautiful, the wood is very interesting and the form just shows the wood off so well. I really like the lip on the top opening, just the hint of a lip really, very nice, provides a transition to the opening, subtle is good

    Thanks for sharing that one, VERY nice!

    Absolutely perfect form Mark! Love the wood! Beautiful grain pattern - great looking finish! Already saved to my favorites! You're giving Travis some serious competition with your hollow forms! Very - very nice work!
