    A nice vessel Allan, I like the shape and the color combination, Weng being a difficult wood to work as it usually does splinter easily, you done well

    Have fun and take care

        Very nice and clever.
        Can I ask, did you turn the inside after it was all glued up, or if I was to attempt one I would turn some of the inside whilst it was in 2 halves then glue it together, I can of course see problems trying to do this.

          I like the shape, the wood combination, and that while it's segmented, it's simply done.

            I love the shape and the color of the Tiger Wood, one wood I have never use. Well done.

                Thanks all. I turned the inside as I went. Then sanded the inside up to the feature ring. Then did a couple more rings and sanded.. the Wenge is quite splintery and splinters seem to get infected but i really like the looks of it when its finished.
