Day 104: Yet more olive

Another quick Olive hollow form rough out tonight.  I'm putting in lots of hours at work lately (and will continue to do so for at least the next 3 months) so my shop time has been limited. 

This piece is about 6" diameter and 7" tall and was roughed to about 1/2" thick.  The cuts on the outside aren't very clean and the overall shape will change quite a bit before it's finished.

I decided to apply a quick coat of oil to help slow the drying process a bit.  It also darkned the colors so they appear much like they'll appear on the finished piece.
