Day 127: Still undecided
I finished the Mesquite hollow form I started yesterday. It's thicker and heavier than I wanted but I have a couple of reasons for that. First it's Mesquite which is rather dense and second because my laser died half way through hollowing and I didn't want to push my luck and ruin the piece.
The color in these photos isn't correct. These have a green tint to them that the wood doesn't have. It's actually a light chocolate brown with tan/yellow sapwood around the opening and on one side. I still may end up burning on this one, I'm not sure yet.
