Beautiful work. Please tell me about the grain orientation and the pith - did you use the whole diameter of the log in making these or half a bigger log? Does the pith run through in any direction? I've been thinking of trying a HF.

Used a small whole log with the pith right down the center. Once hollowing was complete the pith was gone except for the foot. I superglued the pith at the foot to eliminate cracking. Worked well.
