I built this for a contest put on by Baileigh Industrial. It's made of Bubinga, stands 16.5" tall & 5" wide. The body has 12 spirals that are 1/16 thick at their thinnest point. The lid has 6 spirals and the finial has 4. About 60 hours beginning to end. The contest isn't over yet so my fingers are still crossed. Please enjoy.

When it gets frustrating, put your tools down & walk away. 8-) Use quality sandpaper like your rich uncle owns a sandpaper factory & you're his favorite nephew. Always apply equal pressure to the opposite side of the spot you're working on. If you break it, be calm, glue it back together and tell yourself "it's part of the process" Most of all, keep your eye on the prize, the satisfaction of actually pulling it off. All in good fun.
