Honey Maple Hollow Form


This elegant hollow form was turned from a nice piece of sugar maple (Acer saccharum). This particular piece of wood and features quite a bit of curl throughout and a bark inclusion that provide considerable visual interest. The form was turned to its finished form and thickness while the wood was still green (wet) and then allowed to slowly dry. During the drying process the form has gone distinctly oval and the curled figure is now rippled providing an organic tactile quality. This hollow form has been turned fairly thin, and is light and delicate to the touch and a pleasure to hold. The interior of the form is only lightly sanded, leaving an slightly 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. Finished with polymerized Tung oil and then 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.

This hollow form is for decorative purposes and is not intended for food, drink, or liquid of any kind.
