    HF #17, another Spalted Birch

    Well, I am almost finished with all the spalted birch I roughed out last fall. That spalting sure made for some pretty wood!

    I believe that tastes in design and form change as you gain experience. At this point in my turning education I am very happy with the shape of this latest hollow form but there is always room for improvement. For that reason, I am requesting your comments as to the form, finish, photography, etc.

    Spalted white birch, 8 diameter X 4 high X 3/16 thick. Sanded to 400 grit and has a couple coats of thinned Minwax Gloss Poly. Will wait for a few days for the finish to dry before buffing.

    Once again, please excuse the excess of photos but I thought it would help if you could see all the way around the form.

    As always, I appreciate your input.

    Thanks for looking!

    and the hits just keep on coming...

    Another winner,Steve. That's a pleasing form, well executed turning and will be a fine finish when it's buffed out. You pretty much nailed it IMHO.

    The same goes for the photo. I'm not knowledgeable about photography but yours looks very good to me. I like that drop shadow border, too.

    Again with the beautiful work, Steve!?!?
    I'm not nearly as accomplished at either turning or photagraphy as you are, so I can't offer any critiquing.
    All I can do is keep on congratulating you and raving at what a great job you're doing.
    Thanks again for sharing!

    I'm not even close to an expert, but my opinion is, beautiful piece.
