    thanks chuck- do you mean that you'd like a tut on this type of hollow form? as i already have one ready to post on a spalted beech vase which uses similar methods but hollowed through a larger hole- if thats of intrest?

    How about "Both"

    When you have time, of course.

    Those are very nice indeed, the wood is out standing and the form shows the wood off wonderfully

    Man George, there's not much to say about those two other than "fantastic". The wood's gorgeous, and both hollow forms look spot on to me.

    That is some fantastic wood and I really like those hollow forms! What kind of finish do you plan to use?
