Nice Egg! The pictures really show off the straight grain in the wood. The photos are really well done. Do you use a light box or something else?
I watched the video last night, good job of course. The wood looks much darker in the video. It could be a chocolate egg like you mentioned.
Happy Resurrection Day! (Easter)

Nice turning. I remember growing up that panty hose used to come in a plastic version. You probably use it for something totally different though. :-D
