    Natural Color Maple Hollow Form

    Simple Maple hollow form with just enough curl to keep it interesting. 6 5/8” diameter x 3 5/8” high, sanded to 320 grit and has 3 coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe-On Poly. I will buff it out after the finish has some time to cure.

    A lovely piece, Steve. Beautiful finish.
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    I love it, the "bit of curl" gives it a "Wisps of clouds over the mountains" feel

    Pics are great too!

    That's a beautiful piece Steve,

    What hollowing system do you use?
