    What's not to like? The dish is a great idea to accompany the mill. I wonder how the look would change if the space between the beads was left unburned? If the beads were symmetrical at the top and bottom? It looks great as is, but I always question those kind of design decisions in the stuff I make.

    Your finish looks perfect!

    Very nice. Cherry is probably my favorite wood to work with. Nice finish.

    Thank you for your nice comments. David, I'm now working from a story stick so while the form will be close to the same the top and the bottom will offer options for detail. It'll be fun to try different things.

    That is why I stay away from them now easier to just focus on overall shape.

    The dish is a great idea, I had considered it myself , perfect finish and I like the cannon ball top, tried that shape myself and could not get it rite.
