"Most folks are immediately intrigued by the sculpture and think that it is made from three separate pieces wood that have been glued together," Chris said. "They are blown away when they learn that the sculpture started as one 600-pound block of wood that was turned, carved and finished all as one piece — no gluing!"

The feet have been hollowed out on the bottom to prevent cracking. This was the first sculptural piece Chris made in collaboration with his twin brother David for the American Association of Woodturners 2012 Annual Symposium in San Jose, California. "It was my attempt at a whimsical piece for the show."
