Hello; This looks incredible! I wish you took the final shot with the room lit as well, so we could see the finish of the wood better! Anyway, amazing job! Although not shown in the video, the root was rough turned then placed in an over for several hours to speed up the drying, even then it still took a further 4 weeks to dry out and reach a state of equilibrium. The initial rough turn was a little more shaky on the lathe than I would have liked and not something I would recommend doing for any extended period, however it was only a few minutes before it was balanced up enough to turn the speed up a little. Unfortunately the minimum speed on the lathe is only 500rpm, which is a little too fast for out of balance rough turning of things this size. One of a kind gorgeous result. Amazing how you can see the potential a junk piece of wood has for becoming a truly beautiful object.
