Wormy Ash Hollowform, with Pewas

Wormy Ash Hollowform, with Pewas

7.5″ diameter, 4.5″ tall. Finish is Osmo PolyX.

This piece has a nice bark inclusion running up the side. I might have left that alone, except that several other cracks developed during drying. So I fixed those cracks with pewas (butterfly inserts) and chose to bridge the bark inclusion so it would look more complete.

The worm holes – are quite a bit of trouble. Lots of detail work with dental tools and compressed air..

So the cracks with the smaller pewas don't really go anywhere. The bark inclusion only goes around about half way, from the mouth to the side. I left the walls a little thicker than I normally do (a bit over 1/4"), so there's plenty of structure there to support the crack.
