This is my entry for the WOOD TURNING site March challenge. To turn a hollow project where I believe the hole could be no larger than 33% of the diameter. This is the picture of the firewood selection I sent in.

I guess not allot of people do not burn wood for heat, as there where not very many entries. What ever, I did receive first place and my project is displayed on the top of their web page for the month of April. Even though I made the base and finial they used this picture.

A couple more pictures for interests sake.

Thanks for looking, comments appreciated.

Having a great time in shop and out doors. been cold here for April, but nice and sunny.

Video has nothing to do with the project.

That is beautiful mate, love the base and finial as well.

Thanks for sharing


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Great job Brian! Do you turn those green or dried? I tried my first ever hollow-form and it was out of a dried cherry log. Boy was that some hard freehand turning! I’ve got to get busy and make a three wheel support and hollow form turning jig like yours :)
