Silktree closed form the hard way. *LINK* *PIC*

>I started turning this piece about 2 weeks ago. I had it roughed out and just started to hollow it when I had to set it aside. Put it into a paper bag packed in wet shavings. The log was cut last November and sat outside with the ends sealed until the end of May. The pith is not sound but I wanted to turn a whole log hollow form to show off the grain. I applied super glue to the cracks around the pith before packing the partially turned piece in shavings.

I just put the piece into alcohol this evening. You can find more details on my blog.
