This is a turned wood cube with vortex penetrations on each side. The cube is 6” in dimension and made of hard maple and American black walnut. The stand is turned of Peruvian walnut and hard maple. The cube is held in place and turns on a solid brass rod. Assembly is 15” in height and approximately 8” corner to corner. The inspiration for this came from a cube speaker for a sound system.

Finish is Danish Oil that has been buffed with Beall System buffers.

I like it and I’m willing to bet that everyone that sees it has to spin it, Right?

Congratulations on a Wonderful piece of Art.
I absolutely love it.
Colour combinations and design are outstanding.
Thank you for showing.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
