Wide Mouth Four Footed Erlenmeyer Hackberry Flask

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Wide Mouth Four Footed Erlenmeyer Hackberry FlaskHere is another piece in the Footed Vessel Series (formerly known as Three Legged Dog Series).
I recently found a nice piece of freshly cut hackberry. It isn't the flashiest wood but it is a pleasure to cut when green. I processed the wood into 9 blanks and this is the first I've turned from it.It has four carved feet and a wide natural edge with the green bark left in place. There are four piths in this piece.
I am still exploring some variations on the foot concept and also the Erlenmyer Flask shape. This piece was fun and quick. I was able to use the negative rake scraper and a bowl gouge with long wings on a 55 Degree grind to do some shear/sheer scraping to clean up the outside. I ended up wet sanding this one because the Maloof oil/poly/ms made it a little muddy.I enjoy turning green wood because of how easily it cuts. The wall on this vessel is relatively thin at just under 3/16ths of an inch. I worked fairly quickly and immersed the bowl in silicon beads here in the Texas heat for a couple of hours before I finished it. This is how much it moved and warped in the two hours.This Erlenmyer flask is 4” at its tallest and 7 1/4” at its widest.
As I mentioned I ended up wet sanding it with a Maloof type wipe on finish.
Polished with the Beall buffing system and Howard's Feed and Wax.Here is another pic of the Wide Mouth Four Footed Erlenmeyer Hackberry Flask.
Thanks for looking.
