This is the last thing that I turned before shutting down my shop for two years. It is a small hollow vessel approximately 4.5” tall. It is turned from Western (broadleaf) Maple with a Padauk rim around the opening. The wall thickness is about 1/8”. Finish is nitrocellulose sanding sealer and a 2-part friction wax.

Very nice. The padauk rim is a nice touch.

Outstanding form and design. The Paduak rim is a classy touch. I love hollow forms. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. It seems to be a well balanced piece. The Padauk adds just the right amount of contrast.
