    That's some beautiful work. Rather than get rid of the obsession, enjoy the ride!!!

    Those look great, Mike. Just consider your obsession as therapy.

    There may be a spheroholics chapter near you. I'm a charter member.

    Nice spheres. My favorite is the spalted one toward the end.

    Best,

    Dave

    Feed the obsession! Beautiful work. It would be a moral transgression to quit.

    Perhaps you could stop long enough to make some display stands.

    I use ebony to make little cups to show off spheres and eggs:

    The black doesn't detract from the color/figure of the wood. I made a variety, about the same diameter but different heights for variety.

    I'm using a Vermec Jig. Kinda of an expensive purchase, but I'm enjoying the ride!!!
