    Cherry Vessel

    This is the tallest piece I have turned to date. 11" tall, finished with DO and buffed.

    Nobody gets between me and my ice cream......

    Nicely done, Mark. They get challenging when they're that deep, huh?

    Mark,

    Very impressive. The warmth of the piece really caught my eye. I'd love to be able to make something as nice. Great job.

    Beautiful Mark. Those deeper ones can be a challenge. Well done.

    Looks good, and I know from doing something almost as deep, you spend a LOT of time cleaning out curlies from something that deep.

    Beautiful wood!

    That is a gorgeous piece. Very dramatic lighting too. The dark background makes the piece really come out.

    Very nice, Mark. As Lee said, the warmth of that Cherry is really appealing. You did an excellent job of presenting the piece, too with your photography. It really shows it off well.

    I tried a shape like that a while back and it morphed into a large lidded snifter sitting on the bar after I broke out the opening.

    My hat is off to you for doing such a great job on a challenging piece.

    That looks retro 60's with a modern touch. I really like it.
