Hey, loading pictures works again!

New one. Hadn't really tried the whole hollowing a thing out through a really small hole, so that was the last project. Ended up making some of my own tools to reach in there. Made my own caliper of sorts too, and it worked good!
This is Hackberry. Intentionally left a swath of the chainsaw mark on the side. Added the little carved swoop away from the center and elongated the hole in that direction.
It's right at 9" dia and about 5" in height. I love the contrast in color you can get with Hackberry between the light wood and darker streaks as you near the center of the tree. There's more of this one sitting on the ground out there. I'm hoping if I wait until the end of summer it will all be spalted.
Just blackberry photos. No real camera this time.
