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.


Hollow Form, probably Maple but I’m not really sure.

It’s about 6″ diameter and 6.25″ tall.

The bark inclusion was just too big, so I got a little guy in to wall it up.

There was a large crack along one side, which I patched with Walnut pewa.

The bricklayer left some bricks in the bottom.

Sliced Hollow Form

Hollow Form, about 5″ diameter and 6″ tall.

Sliced apart and reassembled with Walnut Pewa. I made two slices at different orientations to yield an opening that flows between wide and narrow.

Pretty sure this was Cherry. Exterior finish is Lacquer, interior painted black.

Genie Escapes!

About 10″ tall and 5.5″ diameter. Ash, with Maple Pewa patches where Genie broke through the wall. Finish is Walnut Oil.

Hollowed from the bottom:

Elm Hollow Form

Hollow from from an Elm crotch. About 10″ diameter and 6″ high.

Turned side-grain – that is, like a bowl, where the mouth of the form is pointing at the tree’s center (pith) and the foot pointing towards the bark.

Bark inclusion bridged with a single Wenge pewa.

Interior painted flat black to enhance the negative space of the interior. Exterior finished with walnut oil to highlight the figure and grain.

Off-Axis Sliced Hollow Form

Round (spherical) Ash hollow form, turned on 2 axes and sliced thru a third. Re-assembled the two halves with Wenge pewa. About 6″ diameter. Finished with lacquer and buffed.
