|This is my first attempt at hollowing out a vessel. I went a little thin in just one part but not bad for a first attempt. It is a lovely bit of tulipwood that I got from a local reclaimed timber yard. I finished it with friction polish.|

Garfield, Great piece of turning for first attempt. Hollow turning is something I would like to try but have not worked up the courage to do yet, ell done.

A lovely shape & finish Garfield.
The tulip wood i`ve turned has had quite deep pink striped colouring, this piece seems quite pale, though this doesn`t distract from an excellent first piece.

I agree completely a very nice piece and looks well finished the wall thickness is often the problem with hollowing out, have you got some calipers to check as you go ?

Hi Garfield, thats a lovely shaped vase and for a first attempt you should be very pleased with it.My first attempt at hollowing was a vase with very thick walls and on my second attempt I cut right through the side!
It was enough to put me off. Very well done.
