I ended up using a prepared piece of Box Elder for the 2nd half of my demo. I didn't want to waste time doing the actual hollowing of a blank so I swapped to a pre-hollowed blank when we took a break.
I'm going to refine the shape a bit more and thin it out a little to reduce the weight a bit so it's a finished piece. I'll probably give it away at the next regular club meeting (April).
