Elm Hollow Form

Hollow form of Elm on a dyed maple stand. Hollow form itself is about 4″ diameter and 7″ tall. On the stand it is about 9-1/2″ tall.

Elm Hollow Form

About 6″ tall, 3.5″ diameter. Lacquer finish.

If it looks crocked, that’s how it dried – the knot on one side sorta sunk in while the surrounding area bulged out. Gives it some character.

Sliced Hollow Form

Honey Locust. About 6-1/2” diameter, 3-1/4 tall. Sliced apart and reassembled with wenge pewa. Interior painted black, exterior finished with walnut oil.

Wormy Ash Sliced

Wormy Ash. Hollowed with a small (1/4″) hole in the top. Sliced and reassembled with Wenge pewa.

About 5 1/2″ diameter, 6 3/4″ tall. Interior painted black, exterior finished with walnut oil.

Yes, I hollowed it through the bottom.


Wormy ash hollow form. About 8.5″ diameter, 5″ high.

This was a crotch with 3 limbs that I found at our club’s wood lot. I turned it whole (leaving in the pith from all the limbs).

I decided to leave the cracks – too many to try to fill or patch. And I removed the frass from the worm holes (lots of those, too).

Finish is Osmo Poly-X.

I did a “Follow Along” post on the AAW Forum to demonstrate my progress and decisions along the way.
