Welcome to our new regular feature
In order to add a new area of interest to the forums and to encourage interaction between the different forum sections, the forum members are introducing this 'Members' Choice' thread to act as a showcase for a piece of work chosen by a member each week as their 'piece of the week'.
This week's members' choice is 'Horse Chestnut Burr Hollow Form' by edbanger, which was chosen by Colinjp. Here's what Colin had to say about the piece: "My members' choice for this week is edbanger's awesome piece in horse chestnut - a hollow form par excellence. It is beautifully turned and finished. I love the way the bark inclusion flows over the edge of the form like lava. I would love to know how he applied the CA finish as this is not something I have come across as a finish other than on pens. It, along With John Hodgson's 'Firecracker' has certainly inspired me to have a go at less than perfect timber and these pieces have probably set the standard for 2015."
Congratulations again to edbanger and we will bring you another chosen piece next week. In the meantime, you can find out more about the pieces by clicking here.
