Great! Any blogs on hollowing out like this? You are a gifted turner. How many times have you lost a project going this thin? Boggles the mind…..

Now that is one gorgous hollow form. I am envious of your work, I have problems doing hollow forms. I have problems getting them deep enough and having internal catches. I will keep trying ;)

Thanks everyone for the kind words. Hacksaw I have destroyed many a fine piece of wood. 4woodturning I use Trifern’s technique using aniline dye.
