This is another hollow form I have been working on. It is turned from orange agate and maple. It is finished with Seal-A-Cell and Briwax. I still have quite a bit to master with the hollow forms, but I’m having fun trying to figure it all out.

As always, wow! I have yet to try hollowing but looking forward to it. You’re giving me inspiration! Thanks!

I’ll have to look into orange agate as well. Very nice color and figure.

Looks like you’ve got them mastered as for as I can see.

Great job Joe!!! Really beautiful work. Glad to see your back up and running, I’ll be posting some center pieces soon out of stone. Ron has ordered one and maybe two, as I’m about to make some out of volga blue granite. It has peacock eyes in it that reflect like foil. I bet your turning a new piece already aren’t you? Keep it up, and have fun.

Rj, orange agate is a relatively new wood imported into America. I believe it is from Peru. It resembles cocobolo, except it is orange and does not have the toxic characteristics.
