Been spending most of my turning time trying to figure out hollow forms. It’s fun but a lot more time consuming when compared to bowls. This birch hollow form is based on my loose interpretation of some of the Southwestern pottery styles. The wood has a number of knots, a few cracks (hopefully filled), some curl and a lot of personality. It was fun to turn and I managed to keep most of it around 3/8”.

Hollow form is 9” in diameter x almost 6” high. Sanded to 400, two coats of Watco Natural Danish Oil, 4 or 5 light coats of Minwax Gloss Poly and then buffed.
I look forward to your comments and/or critiques!
Thanks for looking!
