    1st attempt at hollow form

    This is my first real attempt at a hollow form.it wasn't gonna have a final or a different foot but. I was trying to hollow it and got to thin on the bottom. It is made of some of that spalted pacan with red heart final and foot.I know i need to get a lot better but for a first attempt the wife likes it. Here is a pic of the rest of that spalted stuff as i was getting ready to seal the ends.
    thanks for looking and all comments bad or good welcome
    Steve

    Stephen,
    That is a nice piece of work and I think the Redheart is the perfect accessory for the form... really sets it off nicely. Good Job.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.

    Very nice 1st attempt. I wish mine had been that good. If you like making these things have a look here at Cindy Drozda's work. A lot of them are in fact boxes but they will get your inspiration juices flowing

    Pete thanks for the link.your right she does some great work and i'll be trying some of her boxes as i can see that it sure is easier to made a box than a hollow form. I can see a lot of inspiration coming from her site.

    Stephen that is a good looking HF for your first. I got all three of Cindy Drozda's DVD's. She is really good at showing how to on finials and her boxes. Her boxes can be addicting.

    That's a fine hollow form, especially for a first. What are the dimensions?
