“That wood isn’t fit to burn,” is what the fellow said when I asked about the tree trimmings the power company left along his driveway. This Sweetgum was end-grain hollowed with the pith on axis. The piece is eight inches in height and diameter. The vessel was dyed with a buffed wax finish.

I’m impressed. I was under the same impression regarding sweetgum, and am glad to see it proved wrong. Just goes to show – you can turn anything. Great job!

I appreciate your comments. I’ve been reading Ellsworth On Woodturning and was inspired to turn a spheroid form. Hollowing blind was an interesting challenge that sharpens one’s senses- of touch and auditory variations.
