This honey locust (Gleditsia triacanthos) hollowform is about 7 inches tall. I had a few voids around the bark inclusions that I filled with a mixture of purpleheart, walnut, and honey locust shavings and CA glue. The small bits of purpleheart look really nice. (Earlier, I was turning walnut corncob holders and purpleheart screwdriver handles, so that’s what was surrounding my lathe at the time.

It’s finished with Danish oil and then beale buffed.

Nice job! I am carefull to clean up between woods, just in case i need to use the dust/shavings. I think I’ll be less careful from now on!

Wow! What a beautiful piece this is and it’s so nicely done. The wood is also outstanding.
