    Hollow Vase

    Spalted Red Elm, 7" tall x 4" wide at the shoulders. I made the mouth a little less than 2" on this one but couldn't quite get to the inside bottom with the Hollowmaster. I left about 1/2" or so that was pre-drilled with a Forstner bit.

    Finish is again Mylands and Renaissance wax. I find that's pretty quick and easy for these artsy pieces.

    Beautiful, Cody. I love the form and that wood is telling quite a tale.

    There's only one thing wrong with it....

    It's not at MY house!!!

    Dang Cody, that's a pretty piece of wood. Nicely done on the vase, too.

    Very nicely done, Cody. That's a beautiful piece of wood and you pulled the hidden vase out of it just perfectly. Congratulations!

    Cody, you are too modest. Truth is, you deserve the appreciation. It really has nice form and the finish looks pretty good too.
