Would like your thoughts on this everyone. Not tried anything this intricate before so it is an experiment

hi Derek
     i like the idear of using diffrent materials in turning . in this you have done well i like the spindl where the plastick is but may be a little bit of shaping just above and below that area ,not a lot thowe as you donot want to destract from the ring deighn you have prodused. the rest of it is in good praportion. well don.

Hi Derek
 
i quite like it. it is different, but very well done. i think a "how to" is in order, i'd really like to see the steps it takes to make this.
 
regards

Hi Derek

Like Derek I think a little shape on the pedastal would make it look better.  Having said that I love the rings - How did you do that?

I agree with Vaughn - a how to is in order.

Cheers Dave

Hi Derek.
I think you have made a cracking job. I love the contrasting woods and I must say I am intreagued as to how you made the design ( I hope you didn't paint it on!)
      It is a lovely piece, very well done.
cheers     Ian

I agree with the others.
 
I'd also like to see how you did this design.
 
Its something I can't get my head around seeing the block with the different woods/plastic turned (pun intended) to this. Great thought is definitely needed!
 
 

Perhaps a ring or something in the dish would be nice to see too.
 
Well done mate

I also would love to know how this was done
 
It seems to be some sort of off centre turning, just how it was held and maintained accuracy is beyond me. What was the filling? it appears to have at least two colours.
 
I am not sure if I agree with the comments about some additional decorative turning on the stem, my thoughts were always simple turning one well figured wood, more elaborate turning on plain wood. Not a hard and fast rulle, but one which applies here, more turning would detract from the stem.
 
Having made one Derek, I reckon you could make a pair as table lamps, when lit they would  show the pattern well

I like the knotwork, i have tried it a couple of times and failed, mind you i was turning a Goblet head at the time, and it gave way, must try it again.

Hello Derek,
                     Why do you think you are not a good enough turner to enter the competition. This is a lovely piece of work requiring lots of care and precision, a credit to you. Well done.
  Cheers   Alan  T.
