    Accidental HF in Cherry

    I really wanted this one to be a bowl, but the ants and borers conspired against me. It started out as about a 15" diameter by 15" high blank and by the time I roughed out most of the ant tunnels and worm holes there wasn't enough wood left for a decent bowl....so it became this hollow form. 13" x 6" and kind of a southwest pottery form, Watco'd, buffed and Ren waxed. Thanks for looking.

    That looks very nice Ted. I bet you didn't have any problem (other than the ants tunnel) turning this one on your huge lathe.

    Nicely done, Ted. I'd say 13" x 6" is pretty big for a hollow form...lotta work, huh?

    Ted,

    You are more than welcome for me looking. However, a much larger THANK YOU for showing. I like the wood, I like the shape, I like the color, I like it that you showed it.

    Enjoy,

    Jim
