A Spalted Maple Hollow Form

Here’s a spalted Maple hollow form that we finished recently. The Sugar Maple was turned while still wet and since it has been finished it has slowly taken on an expected slight ovoid shape, giving it a unique appearance.

It is 7 1/2″ by 4 1/2″ and finished with tung oil. The hole in the top is 7/8″ and the wall thickness was turned to around 3/16 of an inch which gives the surprise of lightness when lifted. The base was stained black.

This was our first attempt with our new 5/8″ hollowing tools from Trent Bosch, which we’re obviously quite impressed with. 🙂
