Well, the first in this series was a little on the ordinary side, that is not very creative, so it was time to step up a little and try something that quite frankly scared me.
But the result will be rather nice if I do say so myself.
This is unfinished at this stage, the glue is not yet cured properly and only the outside is shaped. The base and neck also need more shaping but that will happen in due course. The inside also has to be turned out.
The same process was used as the first one, cut all the ring segments, glue the rings and face one side of each ring. Then glue the ring onto the base and face the other side and so on until all the rings are glued.
Then shape the outside.
This one measures 7.75in tall and 7.25in wide.
Thanks for looking.

Your coming along in leaps and bounds Bob, like the choice of woods and the feature ring. Great fit with the segments, you sure got that jig perfect. Well done Bob and look forward to seeing more.

It’s easy to say this is going to be a beautiful piece because it’s already look so good. Love the wood choices also. I’ll be looking forward to seeing your progress! Nice work Bob!

Looks to me like things are coming along just fine. I am watching this with anticipation on doing one myself soon.
