Hollow Forms Winter 2015/2016

I will be retiring from IBM on Aug 31, 2016.    After that I should have a lot more time to make blog entries.   I have a lot of ideas and pictures ready to go.  Stay tuned.

Here are some hollow forms I turned over the winter of 2015/2016.   All of the hollow forms were once turned from Cherry or Black Birch logs.   I also roughed out 30 bowls and finished turned 15 bowls.
