Yew, oak and spalted Turkey oak. The polishing isn't finished yet.

The salt is merely to show it is actually quite hollow. :D

Well done on the first hollow form. On a personal note the top of the for where there is an angle to a flat I personally would have liked to have seen this curving into the base of the lid which will help the form flow more easily

There is actually a little more of a curve than there appears at that angle, but truthfully the top was made for something else - it's for the end of the month competition so I thought I'd finish it first then if my original plan comes to nothing at least I have an entry finished. I'll post another top if I get that far. :D

It's not actually finished - it's TruOil that still need polishing properly. I must admit it is looking good. :D

Especially as most of the hollowing was done with a home made tool that cost about a quid. :D
