This one actually started out as a bowl, the blank was about 10" tall by 12" in diameter, but it had some LARGE cracks along the bark inclusions, so I had to turn it down.
Sorry no before pics, I really was not expecting much but a big pile of curlies from this one...
Some cool bark inclusions in this one....
Some good grain pattern.
even a knot....
More bark inclusions
Yep, a nice BIG mess
I had to go and work at the L shop, so I bagged it for later tonight......
I'll see how this one goes, I have to fire up the hollowing rig later tonight, and give it a go, or I might wait until I get me a laser.....
Well wish me luck, never done a HF with a bark inclusion.........wait a minute......... this is only the second HF I've done, (exploding attempts don't count )
I know the shape needs a little refining yet, I've still got some work to do on it.
