This didn’t turn out the way I had planned but it has some nice grain, It measures 4 1/2×4 1/2 and is finished with Hut wax & bees wax. I had a nice NE top until I sent it flying of the jam chuck finishing the bottom. Oh well, I’ll just have to try it again. Thanks for looking. Lou

Nice job! I like the branch showing there, makes it stand out.

Fantastic vase. Love the grain and the branch in the middle. Sorry to hear about the jam chuck insident. Been there done that. Just another example of “mid Proccess Design Change” Great recovery.

Keep up the fantastic work.

Looks good Lou…. Too bad you lost the edge, but that’s the way it goes sometimes. I had the same thing happen just a few days ago…... Maybe next time.

aren’t hollow forms a blast to turn? I don’t have a very good hollowing tool but it works ok. I need a bigger tool to be able to handle it better.
