Day 303: Ketchup
Catch up work for Saturday's AWA meeting. I slapped a coat of oil on the hollow form I turned and bent yesterday. Cut some African Sumac for the 50/50 raffle, signed 5 or 6 pieces, buffed a couple more, and got a few other things ready to go.
I'm not entirely happy with this piece. It could have been a little thinner near the bottom and the lip cracked when it was being bent. I do like the contrast of the heartwood and sapwood. It's opposite of most woods.
