Instant Gallery

I'm not clear what posessed me tonight but I decided to begin the finishing process of a chunk of Olive burl I've had for the last 8 months.  This was the piece of wood from the "guessing game" entry back on June 9th 2010: http://agoodturndaily.blogspot.com/2010/06/day-295-guessing-game.html and made another appearance on July 22nd entry: http://agoodturndaily.blogspot.com/2010/07/day-338-olive-burl.html.

I've decided I'm going to try to get this set finished for inclusion in the 2011 Desert Woodturning Roundup Instant Gallery.  I have 10 days to get them finished.

Tonight I trued up the outside of all 3 pieces, filled the voids on the outside of the largest piece with coffee grounds and epoxy, and started to turn the inside of the largest piece.  I'm planning to turn them fairly thin, between 1/8" and 3/16".
