    Good job, I like the clean shape and the wall thickness. Roots are challenging but this one was worth the trouble.

    That's a great piece, Steve. Excellent job. You got a very pleasing form out of a difficult piece of wood. Voids like that can be a blessing and a curse. A blessing because it's easy to get the chips out as you hollow, and a curse because you can see the inside, so it has to be sanded and finished nicely.
