Turning Archive

Been playing some more *PIC*

Now that the Holidays are over and various travel obligations I've had time to play in the shop. Got this Box Elder blank from a guy down the street who used to be a turner. By the time I got through all the checks this was more or less the shape left. Rather than make a bowl I decided to make a hollow form. Haven't done one of this shape in long time. needed one more custom hollowing tool to reach all the way to the top outside corner. I left it because now one else will know and it feels good in the hands.

The second one is the 2 version of my Yin Yang mirror. This one I used standard wood and bent it rather than using the Comp wood. It was much harder to bend but worked.
