8 inch hollow form of maple with a Oriole burned on it. The first time I have tried to burn a hollow form. Well almost, I have some that have gone into the fire place

I am in the Sonoran Desert again turning under a tent. Work is now starting to be finished and will be posting more in the coming weeks.

Yes C and C welcome

That looks really good Ron, Geez, I can’t imagine any of your work ending up in the fire. OMG.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice and the bird certainly enhances the turning !
I love birds and next time let me know before you throw it in the fire pit .

Really great turning, wood selection and burning. Great art.

Great to be working outside. Cold here so I moved my lathe indoors. Hollow form looks like the sides are flattened, If so I like that idea and then a straight hole. Nice display vase say for dried grassed etc.
