Kind of a practice piece based on work by Chad Eames.

Well, not my cup of tea, as they say but I'm well aware of how much work goes into a piece like this. From what I can see, it's all very nicely done.  Smiley

Wow very nice !!! Did you use a router to carve the shape ? And also can you reveal a little bit about your staining technique? Did you use minwax water based stains? Very nice piece !

Not a router. started with a reciprocating carver then various bits on a Foredom and then a lot of sanding. The finish is wire brushed then aniline dye to color then three light coats of lacquer then liming wax then several final coats of lacquer.
