I didn't realize this was an anniversary, wasn't feeling particularly motivated tonight, and didn't really have a project in mind when I headed out to the garage. I've been kicking around this piece of wood for quite a while, it's been in this form for at least 9 months and was in my garage as a whole log for an additional 8 or 9 months. This is actually the third piece turned from this log. The other 2 were turned back on days 1 - 3. This piece is from the log immediately above the piece in day 3. The log centers (piths) on each side of the opening on that hollow form are the centers of each half of this piece.
This is a quick shot of the "business end" of the lathe with the nearly finished piece.
