Palo Verde II
I've had this post in my queue for a while, 3 days in fact. I finished hollowing this small piece of Palo Verde on Thursday night.
I still have some sanding to do and there is still a small nub on the bottom I need to get rid of. I'm also undecided on a finish. Do I use my normal Danish oil finish or do I leave it completely natural?
The nub on the bottom with some of the darker spalting. I was hoping there would be more bug holes but it just wasn't to be.
Profile shot. I'm really happy with the shape, it could have curved up a bit more at the opening but it would have made hollowing more difficult. It's approximately 1/8" thick.
