Cedar Hollow Form

Carved from Eastern Cedar. The split was planned and a natural part of the wood I was intending to highlight. I did a little light touch up with a carving tool to clean up the split and hand sanded/finished off the lathe (didn’t trust my hand/fingers to the split while spinning).

I appreciate feedback and critiques.

Wood: Eastern Cedar
Diameter: 6”
Height: 5”
Finish: Shellac and buffed to shine

Very nice. I like that you used cedar. People tend to overlook it for artistic use or fine woodworking.
Thanks for posting. Fav’d.
