This elegant hollow form was turned from a nicely figured piece of Manitoba maple (Acer negundo). This particular piece of wood features considerable some curl on its top surface, some burl on one side, and quite a bit of red streaking across most of the form. The walls of this form are relatively thin giving it a light, delicate feel, but not so thin as to be fragile. The interior of the form is unfinished, and only lightly sanded, leaving an undulating surface from the hollowing tools. The bottom of the hollow form has been slightly dished to ensure that it will sit on a flat surface without rocking and features a bark inclusion that provides additional interest when the form is handled. Finished with Danish oil and buffed to a pleasant gloss, the finish enhances the wood and the subtle details while still providing that unmistakable feel of wood. The perfect form to decorate your shelf or hold dry flowers on your dining room table.
