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.

  1. I've wanted to try this for awhile now...well done! The sap and heartwood are perfect on this piece!
