Just a quick look at what’s been going on in the shop recently. I’ve been geeting wood and ideas in droves and I have been actively pushing some techniques.
#1 is a cherry hollowform that is actually the one from my self supported hollowing system post witht he video. I carved and tinted the bottom with colored gesso.
#2 is a very large ash vessel that is hollowed in two pieces. The top section is cut where the bead is and joined with Titebond to the lower section. By making it in two sections, I was able to make the entire vessel in about 2 hours. Currently sitting in a paper bag drying, and by gluing it up with the grain lines, has not moved enough to break the glue joint. This one is a bit heavy, 2 3/8” or so towards the bottom. Next one will be a uniform 1/4” up to 1/8” at the top.
#3 was cut like #2, but carved and textured like #2. Cherry, white gesso
#4 is just a walnut crotch. I may just sand it out and leave it “plain”, or perhaps use it as another patina project… who knows?
