Day 88: Revisited

I wanted to get something done today do I grabbed a hollow form rough out from off the shelf and went to work.  This piece was roughed out back on days 45-46 ( &

I roughed it to just 1/2" thick so the roughly 40 days spent drying should be enough time for it to be sufficiently dry.

I believe this is also Shoestring Acacia.  The guy I got it from got it from a road crew and it was larger than his lathe could handle.  This piece stands just over 9" tall and close to 6" wide and was turned end grain from one of the pieces that was cut quite a bit shorter than its width.  Both of the pieces in the links above came from the same chunk, side by side.
