Eric's beautiful top was made like a vase with a big hole at the top. I think he was playing indoors and the top got away from him and hit the wall, and shattered. He also said that some areas of the top were only 1/4 thick. The big tops I make are segmented == a spider web of glue. And the wall thickness will be twice as thick. If it ever becomes a top I think any of you pros out there will be able to get a double body cork screw with it. I'm getting to old. In September I will be 73. GET A GOOD LATHE AND HAVE FUN.

I loved watching the video. I so wished I could have been there! At least I helped make it happen by putting you all in touch.
This reminds me I have not yet met in person neither Herman Lau nor you, Cecil.  :(
