    Hollow Forms #2 and #3

    Here are my second and third attempts at hollow forms. Both are finished with Antique Oil and buffed through White Diamond. The first four pics are a little 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of hackberry...

    ...and the last four pics are of a 7" x 3" maple piece (billed as "figured maple" on eBay).

    Great looking bowls Vaughan. I haven't tried hf yet not sure what to buy or how to go about it ,I have to read a little more about it. Just finished a winged bowl after watching Bill Grumbine's video will have pictures later when dry.

    Nice wood in both of those Vaughn, but the forms are great.
    Your application of your new tools is none too shabby either.
