“Return One” is a piece that I made in 2004 after a period of time away from the lathe. It is made of maple and I defined a band around the outside where I carved small pockets and then filled them with pyrography so as to make it appear that there are tufts of fur inside. I bit time consuming, but I really like the result.
Don't forget that you can click on the Zoom in the lower right of any photo to bring up an even larger image to help you see all of the details in a piece.
The finish is a satin oil and urethane blend. Care involves simply wiping off the dust occasionally.
