    similar but different

    A slight variation on my usual spirals . This one with a twist to the bottom, looked ok on paper but not sure it how goes in the flesh, Looking forward to your thoughts and C&C on this one.

    Well, this is just one guy's opinion, but I quite like it. It puts a different twist on the concept (literally), but it's very pleasing to my eyes. And as always, the form and execution are flawless.

    Very pleasing to the eye. The twist draws the eye upward, which is very natural in nature and thus in art. Nice work. I like it a lot.

    I really like! Beautiful piece of wood also. It all seem to fit like that is how it was meant to be.

    Thanks for all the positive comments. This one as I mentioned was an experiment and sometime after spending a number of hours on it your not sure how good it is. Thanks

    Heres a later shot showing how the twist finishes, sorry about the quality. It was a little hard to a image that captured both bottom and top at the same time
