here is the Latest, my 3rd Completed Object. The skirt is more refined, and the neck is more balanced.
I did a few test flicks, and it can almost spin itself. Just keeps going and going. Attached some of my shetland and did a few test spins, and OMG it just keeps going, it is like the ever ready bunny.

I use Mylands Friction Sealer and polish, I also burnished with the wood chips and paper towel.

African umThunzi
Botanical Name: Mimusops caffra
Common Name: Coastal Red Milkwood

it is .9oz/25g and 11.5” long

Pardon the ‘leash’ I could wait to take it for a test drive.

Hi Michelle. That is one fine long thin turning!
That is so interesting, but how does it work/spin? Is there a video on one of these working?

Your welcome,

Glad I could help.

Nice, and you got this design on only your third try. Makes me look like I am standing still.

Looking forward to your future creations.
