1900 piece first turning on my PM4224

This is the first piece off of my new Powermatic 4224. It's 1900 pieces of Curly Maple & tropical Walnut. It stands 12" tall & 8-1/2" wide & 3/16" thick. I'll have it on display at the AAW symposium in my instant gallery. All comments & crituqes are welcome & please enjoy.

Stunning. Every piece you do is amazing. I wish I had the patience to attempt something like that.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Very nice indeed.

What is "Tropical Walnut" is it Imbuia?

It must take nerves of steel to spin up, for the first time, a blank you've invested so much time in.

Thanks very much for the compliments.
The finish is a 3 stage process. It's an oil then a paste grain filler and then a wax to shine it up a little. It pops the grain nicely but still has a natural sheen to it.
