Something diffrent

Hello folks

Here's a Blackheart ash form which caused me a few problems during drying- A large hole opened up on the side and was to fragile to leave- here is my resolve
the form is 5" wide by 5 3/4" tall

Ovoid forms


I've been exploring the ovoid/egg form recently, I prefer to find a form by choice or by accident and make several one after another slightly altering the form and looking at them all to see which I prefer and why. Well with this particular form I'm struggling to get it right- I've made about a dozen now and about half of them are what I believe to be good... so here they are

Burr oak 3" wide by 3 1/2" tall

spalted beech 6" wide by 6 1/2" tall

Ash 5" wide by 5 5/8" tall

Olive ash 5" wide by 5 3/4" tall

New turned box's

Hello folks

I've been busy recently making a few turned box's, these are something I enjoy making from time to time as it gives me a break from the larger green forms and I also enjoy working with small piece's of highly figured/dense woods.
