very nice work. You’ve created a super looking turning. I like the swoopy figure in the ash. Overall it is a great looking shape topped of with a very nice looking finial.

For hollowing I used a 1/4” bowl gouge and a Cap’n Eddie Castelin 3/8” round bar with a 12mm carbide cutter.

Very nice work very nice indeed! I am hoping for something to come my way from Eddie. Looks like he has nice tools at a fair price.
Make sure you show us your next one too!!!
