Making a Kirsten Kone for reverse turning hollow forms

I was wondering if anyone knew how to make a "Kirsten Kone," for reverse turning hollow forms? I've been looking online for directions on how to make on but I havent been able to find any good sources. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Here are some images from Jim Syversteins website of what I have been able to find.

That is a great idea. It has lots of possibilities. Favorited so I can think of different applications.
I would improvise when making it, attach a 2 morse taper to a shaft and make the cone on my lathe with a lockable collar attached to secure the cone onto shaft.

You can make several lengths of shaft and different shaped/ sized cones to suit your hollow form or use as a support inside a bowl for revese turning.
