    Vase w/collar a 1st

    Yep, you guessed more Spalted Maple. This is my first ... what I would call a vase HF. With this I tried a collar out... don't know if I went through the best process of making one... but it came out okay. This is 5 1/2" high and 4 3/4" in diameter. I did much better in keeping the thickness this time at 1/4", but then again I wasn't fearing a blow out.

    Very nice HVaselikeF. I have yet to try an HF with a collar, some day soon hopefully. From what I am hearing I am behind on a salt box. Maybe I'll do one in my spalted sycamore so they'll quit hollerin about ALL your beautiful maple your putting out.

    Jon I don't know where you are getting it but that is some beautiful wood and a great looking HF.

    Great form and that wood is outstanding. The collar realy makes the vase complete. Well Done.

    Outstanding vase, Jon. Awesome wood, a great form and the collar really completes it. It sure didn't take you long to catch on to this hollowing stuff.

    Tom,

    After giving away 4 pieces of 16 inched dia. or bigger.... I've still got about 20-30 blanks out in the back yard on a pallet under a tarp. And I still have about 5 pieces in the basement acclimating to the room temp.
