I thought I'd try something different with a big 12x12 piece of fresh cut oak I had. I liked the shape while it was on the lathe but when I brought it in the house and looked at it awhile it just left me cold. 2 days later it warped like crazy, and now I like it. This is the most dramatic shape change I've experienced. There's a 2.75" difference in width vs depth. It's 12.25w x 9.5d x 8.5"h.
Honest thoughts are appreciated. I have no pride attached to this one, just an experiment.
