Day 217: Birthday and burning
More burning on the trio today. The 2 smaller ones are done. I continued to work on the largest one this evening and it's now about 70% complete.
Tonight was also my next door neighbor's birthday so I turned and then burned a quick hollow form for her tonight. The burning is very simple and was very quick to do. I probably have 45 minutes total into this piece.
I knew she wanted some of the natural wood to show through so I left a band around the middle the natural color. The wood is Ficus and it doesn't have any finish and minimal sanding.
