    Hackberry Hollow Forms

    Here are a couple of spalted hackberry hollow forms I finished up last weekend. The first one, number 6, is a little guy about 4" x 2 1/2", finished with Anique oil and buffed:

    And number 8, about 5" x 5 1/4". I'm not sure I like the form, and it got a little thin in places, but it is what it is. Same finish as the previous one:

    I'm using the Monster Tools captured rig. (It's the MHFL towards the bottom of this page.) It has been pretty easy to learn to use, and much more pleasurable than doing it freehand.

    I've got a piece of hollowed out red eucalyptus that has the finish drying now...it's about 18" high overall. Not your typical hollow form, but it's indeed bigger. I'll show it when it's done [edited to add the link]. I've also got a big piece of madrone burl waiting for the right muse to strike. Here in LA, it can be tough getting my hands on big pieces of wood. I've got some big pieces of red eucalyptus that I saved from the chipper, so they'll eventually end up in some sort of round shaped, too.

    Thanks for the kind words, all.
