I just want to show you guys my first attempt. Overall I am happy but I need to work on my technique for shaping a sphere. Walnut/cherry 6.5" tall with finial and about 4" wide.

Not bad.
I would hang it on a tree.
Looks good. Since it came out that shape, that is what you must of wanted. or at least that is what I say when a vessel does not look exactly like the drawing. :)

Thanks for sharing.
