Two down, two to go
I finished the first two of the four hollow forms I have in progress right now. The smaller piece on the left is Spalted Beech, the larger piece on the right is Curly Maple.
The Beech has been left bare, the Maple has one coat of Danish oil so far. It's hard to get a sense of scale on both of these, the photo below should provide a comparison that everyone can relate to.
A standard U.S. penny is 3/4" diameter (.750"). The openings on both of there are well under 3/4", they both measure 21/32" (.65625"). In fact a standard U.S. dime (.705") is larger than both openings.
The bottoms both have a small base with a slight concave surface. The bases are slightly larger than I've been doing lately so they're a little more stable.
