A few pictures with the first being a 5 inch high rock maple hollow form, textured using a point tool and oiled.
6 inch high Elm hollow form taken to finish wall with the spigot being left in place so the hole can be trued in a few days for the fittig of a lid. The Elm was pretty much dry but I always allow my forms to settle for a few days before adding to them.
8 inch high Rock Maple form, again turned to finish wall with the entrance hole to be finished in a few days or so.
This sculpture has been sitting on my shelf for months so I decided to work some more on it today. There is a huge amount to do but the general shape is now pretty much there. More pictures will be added as it progresses.
