Pathway to Awareness

This piece has taken quite a while to get finished; 25,000 plus pieces in a somewhat random pattern. All pieces glued in one at a time, 144 segments per ring on my Tom Lohman gluing jig! Thank you Tom for helping me scratch that itch I couldn't reach before!! Woods are Holly, Maple, Bloodwood, Wenge, Yellowheart and Purpleheart. Size is 21.5" tall, 10'5" at it's widest point. The piece was fabricated in three sections, turned to 5/32"wall thickness and then joined together for finishing. This was done as a follow along project on the segmentedwoodturners.org webpage if you want to see what crazy looks like in detail! C and Cs always welcome; its how dummies like me learn!! I owe a shoutout to Lloyd Johnson for his SegmentPro software; I love that program!!
Holy $#%T, Russ! That's amazing! The size, thinness, number of pieces - and the form is outstanding (something many segmenters have trouble pulling off).
