This elegant hollow form is turned from a nicely spalted piece of Black Walnut (Juglans nigra). This form has it a light, delicate feel, but not so thin as to be fragile, with a slight heavier base which give it better stability. The interior of the form is unfinished, and only lightly sanded, leaving a subtle, undulating surface from the hollowing tools. The bottom of the hollow form has been turned and decorated with a texture to provide a little surprise when handled. Finished with a varnish oil blend and buffed to a pleasant gloss, the finish enhances the wood and the subtle spalting 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.
