Here is another piece I did in Spalted Water Oak titled “Jorell.” I rarely turn Oak of any kind, but this log was too nice to pass up. Termites did a number on this log before I got to it, evidenced by the holes in the front of the form. This piece measures approximately 10” tall and 8” wide at the widest point. It was hollowed with a Stewart System Armbrace using traditional “Blind Hollowing” techniques (no laser guided, or torque arrested systems). The walls on this piece are 1/8” thick and are uniform throughout the piece. The foot has a delicate undercut, with a free-floating cove to visually elevate the piece when viewed on a table or shelf.
