    Appaloosa

    After roughing out bowls for the last couple weeks I thought I would try something different. This hollow form reminded me of an appaloosa horse so that is what I will call it.

    It is 8 by 5.5 inches and finished with Hut polish.

    Pretty piece of wood Pete, and I love the form, but I'm not so sure about the neck/opening, is it all one piece?

    I NEED to get back on the lathe, but I'm still trying to catch up at work after the vacation

    Stu,

    I'm kinda shaky on the neck also but I am going to give it to a friend who I think will like it. It is one piece.

    Mitch,

    I use the mini rig from monster tools on my PM

    Wonderful shape, Pete. I like the neck/opening. It looks like an added piece, but it's not. Well Done.

    Looks real good, Pete. I can think of some variations on the neck treatment that I just might have to try.
