This is from a piece of silver maple. I turned and hollowed this piece the day after it was cut. As I hollowed the piece out I used compressed air to drive the “free” water from the piece. A walnut decorative ring was added to the opening – this helps the piece from going oval. The piece is 10 inches high and 5 inches across at the widest point. Wall thickness is just less than 3/8”. The top is a piece of cherry with a contrasting band of walnut. I dyed the vessel with blue anline dye followed by green anline dye. When the dye was completely dry I spray the vessel with crushed stone followed by two coats of high gloss spray.
