This hickory piece came from a 150 year old hickory that was blown down in a storm here in Tampa. The base of the tree was a 5’ diameter. This hollow form is 14” high and 11” diameter. The decay in the middle of this piece created a very neat natural edge.

Your work is superb! It must have been a real challenge to keep that together with such a big area missing.

Thanks for sharing this,

The void did present a challenge. I did have it wrapped with duct tape while doing the inside and I am still amazed that the small piece at the top right remained on. I really wanted that to make it through the turning and some how it stayed on.
