I adore wood colors and all their variations, but I needed a color boost on my display shelf. This fluted Hollowform seemed like a good choice to put some vibrant & shocking color on. And girl, oh, girl, does this stand out.!!!
Hope ya’ll enjoy it too, and it gives you a tiny boost for the day.

Very creative, and yes, it is certainly an eye-grabber. Nicely done. I assume that this piece is being promenently displayed? What is the base wood?

What type of wood? Do you have any during the process pictures?? Looks nice though.

hi Brice: It was black limba, but on the shelf it was B-o-r-i-n-g!!! So I colored it a great shocking color. Glad I did. it sure made a difference on my shelf. I made a “rose copper” piece the other day & those 2 light up a room!

Very, very cool! I love the color. The design is amazing too! Just beautiful. Sometimes you need to add some color to wood, I think. :)

Sweet piece! Did you flute it on the lathe with a sliding router set up?
I know what you mean about adding a highlight piece to a display!!

Thanks, Jim

You have done it again, quietly working in the shop and then springing two wonderful turnings on us. Those
colors really do add something to the wood and the projects. Thank you for sharing.

Yes, I’d say vibrant and elegant as well. Nice one, Michelle.

A bit of the Art Moderne about it – and the color certainly contributes to that. Wonderful work – it is a little piece of perfection. Speaking of which, how big is it?

Kay: about 7×7 inches thanks for the lovely comment

Pete: it’s a bowl from a board one piece of wood cut into rings and stacked & turned. then the top was glued on & it’s a real good seam, so it’s just about invisible. If you have been watching my stuff, i have been on a tear to upgrade the lowly bowl from a board concept. I think this might give it a boost.
