    Curly Box Elder HF

    Curly and Red Box Elder HF

    This piece of red box elder has some nice curl figure in it, although it does have a few little short shrinkage cracks that I left as-is. It's about 5 1/4" wide by 3 1/2" tall.

    Sanded to 600 and finished with my same ol' same ol' Formby's Tung Oil and buffed.

    nice looking piece vaughn...as are all of yours.

    would you mind going into some detail on how you hollow these pieces? am new to the craft and haven't tackled that challenge yet.
