this form is influenced by Mark Sange .this form is probably the hardest I have attempted. the form is 5x3 with a 3/4 hole. the wall thickness in places is about 2 to 3 mm wall. this is finished with sand sealer and baby oil. all comments welcome.dscf5186.jpgdscf5187.jpgdscf5188.jpgdscf5189.jpg

Another nice hollow form Dennis. The only thing for me is I feel the foot area could have been a little smaller and giving it a slight lift to the foot would make it float more

Right, own up...you have a pixie working for you🤔

How the heck do you turn such angles with only a small entering hole??…

Your turning is taking New bounds mate, stunning!!

Just one little question if I may....are those turning marks around the girth that haven't been sanded out or a purpose design??

thank you Mark for your comments. no no pixie's. as for the turning of the inside I went in through the bottom and plugged it with a part from the bottom when turning the chucking point. the marks on the side are sanding marks that when in the shed I never seen but under photo flash it showed up. will be sanding it of and finishing it better tonight. will post the final photo after finishing.

Oh Dennis, I didn't mean it to be redone mate, if it's only the camera flash that shows it, don't use flash when taking photos! LOL

Ah now I know the secret, bottom in, I never thought about doing it that way...clever 🏆👍🏼

Keep them coming my friend, they are great to look at 😉😊

well Mark no problem about re doing it I was anyway. that is why I put the rings in the base to disguise the joint. this is one from Mark Sanger's book. turning hollow forms. here are the before and after photos from re finishing the form tonight after a 12hr shift at work that is.dscf5187.jpgdscf5192.jpgdscf5190.jpg

Stunning work mate and for me, definitely better without the lines 😉😊

I hated my 12 hour shifts, it was more like 16 when the liners came into port (I did docks security) so still having time to do this is awesome...
