Pair of Red Cedar HF's

Both of these are about 7"X5.5" and finished with a bunch of wipe on gloss poly. Taken from the same log but I turned away most all of the sap wood to get a red vase. Walls are about 1/4" Fun stuff to turn and smells sooo good...Bill..

Man, nobody around this forum works do they? LOL!

Beautiful work Bill. You make me want to learn to do hollow forms......

Did you make that from a log you got from a tree or a blank that you purchased?

Bill,
Those vases look great. They just glow. How many coats of the poly did you put on?

They look very nice. I like the finish too. Looks like glass.

P.S., I know what the "Pair of red cedar" part means but what is the "HF's"? I was thinking Harbor Freights. But those don't look like big tool stores.
