Box Elder Burl hollow vessel I just finished up. 8”x 6” I bought a couple new photo back drops and have been playing around with different light sources. Taking pics of your work can almost as hard as making it. All comments and questions welcome.

Beautiful work. I agree with you about pics of your work but those are some nice photos. If it wasn’t so expensive I would just pay someone to do it.

Really great piece of wood and form, so just outstanding!

I have read camera instructions three times and scoured the internet for information on taking great photos, still just a point aim and pray when taking pictures. My way of saying you took an outstanding photograph!

Thats a beautiful piece. Any idea how thin you got the sides? Also what do you have for a hollowing system? Hope to do one when I find the right piece! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you very much everyone. Paul the walls about 1/4” thick maybe 5/16” towards the bottom. I do all of my hollowing by handle with a set of Kelton hollowing tools.
