Day 317: Dynamic Duo

I wanted to hollow the Redwood hollow form I started on yesterday but it didn't take long before I found a problem with that plan.  I couldn't find a required piece for my hollowing system.  I was able to start the hollowing process using a small hand held scraper but couldn't do much more than the first 1".  I wasn't ready to be done for the night so I mounted up the Desert Ironwood hollow form I started on last week.  The 2 woods are incredibly different, the redwood is lightweight and very soft.  The Ironwood is very dense and hard.  It weighs about 3 times as much as the redwood piece which has a similar volume.
