Cherry Waltz II by ImrikDragon
Cherry Waltz II
This piece was created in three major sections. The base is two layers of three inch thick stock laying down laminated together. The top is made in the same way with two layers. The center is two layers laminated together but standing up instead of lying down. The center was then mortise and tenoned into the base and top. Once I had that form built up I stated the initial shaping with a mini chainsaw and then proceeded to the detail carving with die grinders. It was then sanded and finished with a clear polyurethane.
This is my second Waltz design. The inspiration for these pieces came to me when I woke up suddenly at 3am one morning. I had a vision in my head of a spinning dress carved out of wood. This has been the driving vision behind most of my work since then.
The judges said: "Struck by his vision, inspiration & frank structural edge style - fluid & almost fabric-like" awarding young, newcomer Martin Antaramian, Kenosha, WI Best in Show-Furniture-Contempory/Modern/Mid-Century Inspired-Piece!

Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!

I got that from a friend and now am spreading it amongst some friends.
