The end of "The Shanks" *PIC*

George Guadiane
I'm doing a hands on demonstration of thin walled pedestal box with finial at the Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center, February 8.
For the last week, I had been trying to make a finial for this nicely spalted sycamore crotch hollowform. I had "the shanks." I tried different woods, different tools, different techniques, I was breaking EVERYTHING!
Finally, yesterday, after taking a day off, I picked up this piece of curly ash and got an acceptable complete finial. I still haven't settled on my own finial design, so this is another variation
CA finish on the hollowform, Renaissance Wax only on the finial.
5 7'8 inches in diameter 9 1/8 inches high with finial.
