Keith Burns Critique

The ambrosia maple is absolutely beautiful and your finish couldn’t be any better. It is very smooth and inviting. I like the fact that you didn’t throw this away and waited for whatever your inspiration was to use the collar. The form is perfect and well proportioned. A finial is not always necessary and in this case it is not needed. The beads in the collar add enough visual interest that a finial might actually be a distraction.

As much as I like the collar and the beads, the one thing that bothers me is that it breaks the flow. If you had used a concave curve upward instead of a convex curve it would not break the flow. All in all this is a very well done work.
