Well, after much debate about a stand for this piece a quick trip to the local blacksmith has given me just the solution....

 

This piece is around 50cm in diameter and made from a single piece of Elm burr (not burl), complete with voids and inclusions - warts and all! 

It is part of the "Cup and Ring series" of works and as one gallery visitor said "thats quite a statement " and before anyone says anything, no there is no resin in it at all and there isn't going to be!

Thanks to Hallidays, Borgue for the stand.
