This hollow form is turned from box elder and measures about 4.5 inches. You just never know when Mother Nature will expose herself.

All comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.

Kinda like the hole in Willie Nelson’s guitar. An heirloom. Beautiful!

That is another beautiful piece. I would like to know how you turn something like that without catching the cutting tool in the void?? Great job and thanks for sharing

Fantastic ! The way you can look into the vessel through the void totally makes this piece. I could see myself constantly gazing into the void.

Joe, another great turning. Lou, very light cuts and a steady hand. You have to be in control of the tool.

Gorgeous, Joe!!

From the photo, the form appears as a perfect sphere. Did you free hand it?

Thanks everyone.

Loucarb, it’s all about light cuts, sharp tools, soft touch, and concentration.

Lou, I did free hand the shaping and the hollowing.

Beautiful, steady hand, do you go into a state of being while doing these? A special concentration? Or is it just a process? Are there many we never see? Am I bugging you yet with the questions?
