    Very nice Neal. I also like the finial very much; a marvelous contrast to the bulbous vessel.

    Neal, every once in a while you should post pics of one that's not perfect. It'd make us mortals feel a bit better about ourselves.

    Gorgeous piece, Neal.

    That's a real beauty, Neal!
    As the others said, you sure do have a way with finials. Thanks for sharing.
