First Hollow Form

The wood is Box Elder. This piece didn’t have much red in it but I did choose it because I wanted the folded wood between the 2 limbs in the neck. The neck looks almost 3D holographic in the light.

I cut it completely wet including hollowing it as recommended by a friend. It hasn’t warped at all. It has just shrunk a bit.

It has a lot of spalting lines, red, green, and lots of other features that give it a great personality!

Thanks for looking,

Beautiful work. Hope it is finished shrinking.

That is some very good work Dude. Keep it up. Do you think it will float in the pool?

Looks really great for a first timer. Like the shape and those wild grain patterns. Great turning!
