Hollow form turned from Box Elder Burl
July 9, 2020
The hollow form has been turned from the finest piece of Box Elder I've ever worked with. The bark inclusion at the bottom should not be seen as a defect but a reminder of just what burl wood is! Figure and color could not be finer, and the technical challenge here was hollowing the piece out completely using only a very small opening on the top (half an inch!).
4 inches high; 3 inches diameter
