This is the hollow form I was turning when I experienced the catch I had posted about in this thread: http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ad.php?t=14468
Lots of curl, some bark inclusions and a few cracks help add a little life to this hollow form. The cracks were filled using CA and some bronze powder (circa 1923) I had inherited from my grandfather. The form is 7 ½ in diameter x 4 high, sanded to 320 and has several coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe-On Poly. The top of this is 1/16" thick, the corner is close to 3/8" and the sides and bottom are 1/4" - so it is not as thin as I would like. Afraid I got a little gun-shy after the catch I had and did not wish to blow the piece up!
