    Hey Bruce, another awesome piece. Thanks for posting your work here so that it can be appreciated. I'm really curious on how that piece was done.

    Thank you Lawrence and Ken working on a new whip now. This one will be a bit different type of piece for me as I'm going for a more modern feel / look. This is just the start of the first section of several parts. This Teak cylinder is 4 1/2" x 9 1/2" 1/8" thick wall.
