Spiral chalice
Sep 21st, 2013 at 1:52pm
 
Hello everyone, my first project posted here, you may have seen it on other forums. I made this for a contest put on by Baileigh industrial for 1k in tools. In the end I was the lucky winner. I call the piece Spiral Dream, it stands 16.5" tall & is 5" in diameter. My wood of choice is Bubinga. It's necessary to use a very hard wood to do this and maintain some smidgen of strength. Anyway, please enjoy.

Absolutely a stunning piece! Yes, please explain how you did it and what tools you used to carve the openings to get such fine details without them breaking...I would like to try this.  Smiley
