    BLM HF

    Put this together last week. It's the last of my BLM since Mike Smith went out of business. Big 'ol crack was hiding in the middle so it received the turquoise treatment. Hollowed to 1/4" and several million coats of AO knocked down with 0000 steelwool. 8x4 and not signed it yet. Thanks for looking...enjoy by adding C&C!

    Ya know Jim, if you keep this up, your "I don't turn hollow forms" excuse is gonna go right out the window.

    This is a great-looking piece. Form and finish both look top-notch from here.
