    Maple Burl HF

    Spent a few hours demo'ing at an art gallery about an hour away this past Saturday. Finished up with a couple coats of Antique Oil once I got home, then buffed. 4 1/2" diameter by 4 3/4" tall.

    Amazing again Travis!

    Are you teaching in Ohio again this summer? I would like to come if it is on the week I don't have my kids.

    That thud you heard was my jaw hitting the keyboard.

    Keep practicing, Travis. You'll get good at this one day!

    Yeah, he is showing promising signs, huh Neal?

    Yet another great piece, Travis. I guess I hadn't realized how small the mini hollowing rig was until I saw the last pic. It obviously does the job just fine.

    How you you clear the chips out of a piece like this when you're doing remote demos? Do you take a compressor along to blow them out, or have another way of clearing them out?

    Yep, I love my little mini rig, it works great. I have an old airbrush compressor I usually use, but got lazy and didn't take it this time. So I had to use lung power and a short length of 1/2" hose.
