Hi All,

As part of a test review for a new deep hollowing system I turned a tall hollow form with a 2mm wall section, this was later airbrushed with Chestnut's spirit dyes and then pierced with the dental drill I have on loan.

The inside was sprayed black with ebonising lacquer, the piece, called Secret Garden because of the long and winding path type cut out was turned from a wet sycamore log and measures 10" tall by 6 1/2" in diameter.

I think it is incredible in terms of the craftsmanship, but the finish I don't get at all. It must be the photos's I guess, but (in those photos, on this PC) it could be spray-painted clay or plastic.

I must admit, I thought the same thing. But the workmanship is amazing

Sorry, I didn't mean my message to sound offensive, if it did. It is totally a matter of subjective taste, and the finish is obviously extremely well done. What I should have posted was a question asking about the reason for CC using the vivid colouring he does. I can see that it frees up from the monotony of natural wood, which for art-like vessels like this can make them seem a bit samey otherwise, despite the incredible skill.
