This hollow form was finish turned about a month ago, but I haven't had much shop time lately to get it finished and photographed. The wood was a piece of dry maple I got from Chris Wright a few months ago. This one had pretty plain figure, so I decided to do a color fade on it. It had some cracks from the get-go, but I just filled them with black epoxy after turning to finished dimensions. The pics make it look much more splotchy than it is in person. This one's a big one for me...about 8 3/4" tall and 11 1/2" wide. It was a lot of dry maple to cut through. Finished with TransTint, dewaxed shellac, and lacquer. I still need to buff it, but I got tired of waiting to show some work around here.
