This is a piece of cherry that for whatever reason continually develops radial cracks while turning. I had hoped to make a nice looking hollow form out of it … but it makes for some really nice looking firewood! This is my second attempt at this form (had radial cracks in the first one also - both from same log) and in the hopes that I (we) can learn - I ask for critiques on the form.
It's 7" from the foot to the lip, 4" at the mid-section and the foot and the lip are matched at 2 1/2".
Thanks in advance for your input!
