Day 114: Collaboration

I first turned this piece at least a year ago, tonight I had it given back to me as an early Christmas present, with a few modifications.

It's mesquite, 5-6" diameter and 4-5" tall.  My mother asked me to turn several hollow forms for her that she then planned to carve.  I left them plenty thick as her previous attempts are carving were flowers, vines, and grapes rather than pierced work like this.  This made the piercing much more difficult and time consuming as she had to pierce through 3/8 - 1/2" of dry Mesquite rather than the 1/16 - 1/8" that the walls   should have been.

Song of the night:
Better than Ezra, Still life with Cooley

I couldn't find a video.
