    Aspen Hollow form

    I had this chunk of aspen laying around and decided it needed a turn or two so I chucked it up and this is what was inside.

    It's 3 3/4" high, 5" in dia and the opening is 2" wide.

    That's a neat piece of wood, Don. I don't think I've seen aspen that dark. How was it to turn?

    It was like turning balsa wood. No shavings at all just fine dust.
