Here is a tall skinny hollow form, turned from Pistachio wood.
It is 3 inch diam. X 6 1/4 inch tall. Turned to 1/8 inch wall thickness.
Finished with Tung Oil/Varnish, after sanding to 400 grit. Polished with the Beall Wood Buff= system.
This is the deepest hollow form I have done yet. It was a real challenge getting that deep inside of the 1 inch opening. Not really sure how thick the wall is towards the bottom. My calipers= do not reach that far. haha
The grain on one side (pic 2) looks like a painting that was still wet and someone ran their fingers through it. Mother nature comes up with her own beautiful art. I am happy to have the opportunity to try and enhance the beauty of the wood with my turning. (my wife LOVES it, that is all that counts)
Please leave all comments and critiques. I am always trying to improve my skills and your comments help.
Thanks for Looking.
