Oak Hollow Form

Oak Hollow Form


This piece is about nine inches in diamater, five inches tall with a two inch opening. It was cut from North Carolina Oak and turned while green. The wood was pretty wet and my wife said the wood shavings smelled like vomit. I disagreed. This was my first attempt at a hollow form with a small opening. I read one of David Elsworth’s books on hollow forms for instruction and inspiration. This piece was a lot of fun.

The finish is ZINSSER BULLS EYE Clear Shellac Sealer & Finish. I just love the yellow glow shellac gives to oak. I used three coats. As expected, the sides have moved slightly making the piece oval looking from the top. It’s really cool.
