It looks cool. Is it a bowl? I guess I've never heard of a "wobble off" before, but then I don't run in turning circles.

Looks like it will wobble to me. Really nice turning Bobby.

I'm assuming a wobble off is sorta like a bake off except you use a lathe instead of an oven, and you can't eat anything that you make :)

Well I also don't know what it is or is to do…..But it does look cool. I am also interested in R W B colour wood?

That is interesting. I am curious about the wood as well.

Thanks for the comments, they are appreciated. If you do a goggle search on femispheres, you should get an idea on what they are and how to make them. When placed on an incline they will roll in a straight line.

The wood is laminated veneers and is made by Rutland Plywood, www.rutply.com
I have also seen it in the Craft Supplies USA catalog.

Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down. So, from the looks of it, this must not be a Weeble. Don't know what it is either… but I like it.

So that's what that is… ColorWood.

While visiting home this holiday, my mother and I ran into something similar to these in a country gift shop (in the lobby of the Tropicana casino in Atlantic City, NJ). She had just gotten me for Christmas the parts needed to turn my Sherline mini mill into a tiny wood-turning mill, and I told her that now I could make those for her. She didn't believe me :) I said I just needed to figure out a good way to dye strips of wood before gluing them up, perhaps with anyline dyes. ColorWood would make it a lot easier!

Also, neat work!
