Another hollowform from a Shedua board. this time I thought a nice tall finial would look nice. I cannot capture the chatoyance of this wood. It is just spectacular. Sanded to 800 grit & it shines like it has a gloss finish. Buffed and a tad of wax.

It is Spetacular. You certainly matched the grain well to piece it together. Where does it open? At the first small bulge?

Thanks barb..it doesn’t open..it’s a hollowform. I like making these as I only have to sand the outside well!!!! :-) saves a ton of time!!

That’s some beautiful coloring and grain! I think Shedua is quite under rated, as it can be quite beautiful as you’ve proven with this piece.

hey TMS it’s a bowl from a board, so no hollowing. I added a lid & glued it on..then made the finial stuff. It sure beats hollowing a huge chunk of wood. Bowl from a board is very wood efficient..it took less than 2 board feet for this..one for the vessel & one for the lid. (there are videos on bowl from a board on You Tube I think)

Beautiful job never heard of Shedua but will have to look into getting some and just as the rest of your work this shows the talent you possess thanks for sharing, Is the upper portion of the finial Ebony?

Interesting grain and a beautiful finish, Michelle. Simple yet subtley attractive form too.
