I'm looking at this amazed at your skill and how beautiful this turning is. I really hope I'm not calling attention to something you consider a defect. Does the maple cone have a very slight warp to it? It looks like it in the pictures and I love that it highlights the natural element of the wood to me it gives the piece life.

I think the combination of points on the arms and the cone shape compliment each other quite well. How close are you to reaching the limitations of the wood? I can't imagine there is a lot of strength left in arms with end grain and all of the different wood grain directions.

I also couldn't help but thinking "How can i push mark to make something even more complicated". Would it be possible to have arms and legs with them connected with a ring in the center? It'd be like what you have here but mirror about the floor. I suppose at some point you are limited by how big of block you have. I was also thinking abut some sort of S shape that gets rotated around so the legs go out while the arms go in. Just ideas to allow you to try something new and amaze us once again.
