I finally got something turned I want to share. It is not a glorious free form, hollow vessel turning. In fact it is rather silly, useless and I love it. Mostly because it will always remind me of my once in a lifetime chance to visit Target Field in Minneapolis for the first home game. I was lucky enough to get to go so of course I had to buy a piece of memorabilia. I thought this colorful ball would fill the bill but after a couple weeks I knew it needed the proper presentation so I turned this small pedestal.

The game was great, the field is beautiful, the day was perfect and I'll probably never forget it.

The wood is walnut, from a tree branch from my BIL's property.

Thanks for looking.

Great work Lad! That's just what is needed to display a worthy piece of memoribilia. Looks beautiful and if it helps get you though a rough day even once by taking you back to a beautiful day at a ball game, then it's worth it's weight in gold. :wink:
