This is an experiment in form. The pedestal and collar are cherry, the hollow form is birdseye maple and the finial is curly maple. The pedestal was turned so that it would be a continuation of the curve of the hollow form. I wanted the collar to look like it was something that was laid on the hollow form and then just assumed the form – sorta like soft fabric. The base of the finial was turned to reflect the soft curve of the collar and the bulbous portion of the finial was to reflect my favorite shape of hollow form - in miniature.

The HF with finial is 7 3/4" high X 3" diameter. Everything was sanded to 400 grit and has one coat of thinned Minwax Poly. Nothing is glued together – just in case I wanted to change something down the road.
As always, your thoughts, comments, critiques and suggestions are most appreciated!
Thanks for looking!
