    Ash Hollow Form

    Turned from a Y branch, the bottom of the Y is the bottom of the HF. Lots of bug holes, bark, and a big void on one side. 7" x 7", finished with deft spray lacquer.

    Great form and nice piece Curt. I agree with Doug that the pucker factor was at least 8 maybe 9.

    Very nice, Curt. Great wood, and you did it proud. I'll bet that big ol' hole in the side made is easy to sand, huh? (At least you didn't have to stop to blow the chips out of the inside when you were turning it.)

    If there is anything that will get your 100% undivided attention while you are turning, it's turning something like THAT!

    Looks awesome Curt. I love the color and all that is going on with this HF. Yep................that's a dandy!
