Very cool. I love the color of cedar heartwood, and seeing someone using 3 legs instead of 4 always makes my inner nerd happy. Screw that redundant point.
Out of curiosity, how did you go about hollowing the log?

Thanks! I used my Dremel Sawmax to hog out about half of it, then just used a half inch chisel on the rest.
