    Another Hollow Form

    Spalted white birch, #19 in the series, 9 diameter x 4 high, sanded to 400 grit, 4 coats of Minwax Gloss Wipe-On Poly. Will wait for a week or longer for the poly to dry before buffing.

    You're turning into a hollow form machine, Steve. This one looks sweet. Looks like you got the "dipped in glass" finishing process down.

    Very, very nice Steve.

    I like them very much, and how the spalted area shows, and enhances the whole shape.

    My criticism ( if any) is more a matter of taste than any other thing, I'm a bit disturbed by the fact that the top half is more flat than the bottom half, and as I like very flat bowls and jars I would rather prefer to have the bottom half more similar or symmetric to the top one.

    But of course that is me not you!
    Best regards,
