Pete, this is what I did with that piece of Matai you sent me from New Zealand. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a hollow vessel that is hollow within 1/4” of the bottom but I did not hollow through that little hole. It was made in 2 pieces and assembled and turned. The finial ( if you can call it that) is made from female box elder wood. The last shot is finishing the finial in the mini lathe. Thank God I have that little bugger for back up!!!
Both pieces are finishes with EEE and Shellawax
