    Elm hollow form

    This is made from "Water Elm", the wood turned nice and did not smell like most elm. The form is about 7" in diameter. comments / critiques welcome

    That's some very pretty wood. You did a great job.

    My only critique is that I'd love to see a bigger picture. You can go up to 800 pixels wide if you want. If the file size is too big, you can lower the JPG quality (or increase the compression...same thing) and it will not be noticeable on-screen.

    I have to agree with Vaughn, great looking piece, and I'd love to see a larger picture of it too

    thanks for the kind words, the finish is lacquer. Here is a slightly larger version of the same picture. I am not good at pictures, it was just a snapshot with a plain digital camera
