Hello folks

here is a mini burr elm hollow form which I made recently its 3 1/4” tall by 3” wide- it had some natural fissures which I filled with crushed calcite powder and glue.

-- it can't rain all the time!!

Looks great. Did you use a thin CA glue, or maybe epoxy? I would love to try hollow form turning someday, though it scares me a bit… my bowl gouge loves to catch even on normal wide-mouth turnings.
