    Walnut Hollow Form

    IMO, this is my best HF to date. Walnut was given to me by someone that I sold some lathe accessories to at the Woodsmith Store. He will be getting a bowl from some of the rest of it.

    Size is 7" H X 5" W and finish is watco danish oil. My wife's office neighbor and favorite co-worker is retiring in about a month and this will be her retirement gift.

    Nice job, Jeff. That gift should be very appreciated. As my skills and experience increase, I've learned that my "favorite" or "best" pieces keep changing.

    That's the hope...that we keep getting better, right?

    Well Jeff.

    You, Vaughn, Stu and all the others who have a lathe are tempting me to come to the "round side of woodworking" but my heart is still pure, we the "flat workers" take a cilindrical log to make square things, you just take a cilindrical log to make more cilindrical or revoluted objects.

    Beatiful ones though, I must admit, but I'll stand the temptation,
    Round objects that remind the curves of a beatiful Venus, polished as smoothly as her skin mmmh.... when one passes one's hands over them mhhh....

    But I will not surrender!!
    ....I think I'll go downstairs and measure if I've got the space to put a lathe.

    Honestly, very good job Jeff..
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Good looking hollow form Jeff! Really like all the texture! It's going to make one heck of a great gift! Very nice work!

    Toni - if you should fall into the abyss just remember that there are lots of folks here willing to assist with any questions you have. We love turning - but we all love helping others as well. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your new lathe - someday soon I hope!
