A little hollow form … 5”in diameter and 6” tall. Wall thickness is about 5/32”

Not sure of the species … the log was dry as a bone (7% moisture), and I got powder instead of shavings. It smelled like a conifer, but the grain looks more like a hardwood.

What ever it is, it is perfect.

Good job Gerry, how did you get it so round?

... how did you get it so round?

I used the same method I use to turn spheres on the top portion (from the largest diameter to the top). I get it close with a spindle gouge, then sheer scrape to smooth it out. Here is an article by Tim Kennedy that details the method I use to turn spheres

It’s lovely. Looks like, mebees, Pecan. I have that article open. What a wonderful idea Tim had there. Especially, sitting the sphere on natural bases. Wrinkled my brain. You did that. Wrinkled my brain. Thanks.
