This is a hollow form I made from another piece of my ash firewood. The blank had some cracks, but I thought I'd see if I could turn the cracks away. Ends up, I couldn't. Still think it came out pretty neat. It's 12 1/2" wide and 8 1/2" tall. I sold my biggest HF at the last show, so I wanted another big one to replace it in the display. It's finished with a single coat of polymerized tung oil, then rubbed out by hand with white synthetic steel wool and waxed with Renaissance wax. I decided to go for a little foot on this one...it's about 1 1/2" wide.
