  Re: (...)
This is a piece of oak I picked up a while back. It was old, gray, cracked, and weathered. It was already dry and had been laying out in the elements many years. It was interesting though so I grabbed it and recently gave it a turn. It was so dry and hard that my HSS did not like it much. The outside was easier to turn than the hollowing. I was spending way too much time at the grinder. About half way done inside, I purchased a carbide cutter and made a holder for it for my home made hollowing rig. Worked easier. Kind of looks like an old found relic with all its flaws. Wanted to leave some of what the outside looked like in the piece. 10 1/2" tall.

Very nice piece of oak. I haven't seen grain like that in oak, especially in the second photo. Good job.

Seven days without turning makes one weak.

That's a very pleasing shape and one helluva chunk of oak.

If hummus is made from Garbanzo beans, why isn't it called Garbanzus?
