This elegant hollow form was turned from a nice, subtly figured piece of Manitoba Maple (Acer negunda) which is also known as Boxelder. This particular piece of wood and features all kinds of character with several bark inclusions, some curl, some birds eye figure, and even a little spalting. 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 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 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.
