    small hollow form

    This one is spalted beech with a dyed hazel finial & leg. It's 3" dia and with a 3" finial & leg.



    I like making these things even if they have only a decorative purpose. Getting the leg & finial right is the hardest part. Think this one is OK what do you think?

    Wow, that is certainly nice work

    If I was to fault anything, I'd say the base need to be a bit wider to balance better with the actual HF.

    Still that is very nice work!

    That is a gorgeous piece of wood, Pete. I like what you did with it.

    Beyond "OK". Very pretty. Those delicate finials are hard to do without breaking.
    Better get that one in quick, it looks like rain clouds in background are coming at you.

    I concur with the others...better than OK for sure. Nice work, Pete.

    I agree with Stu about the base...but if it was on my mantle...who cares! Great piece and since I can't do that kind of thing...don't listen to me

    I looked at it and then read Stu's comments about proportion and then looked at it again. I think it turned out pretty good and I kinda like the proportion too.
