A very nice piece there Derek . I do like the very smooth curve you have finished got on it and the finish is superb too . Did you hollow the inside to a similar radius and if so what is the approximate wall thickness and what tool did you use ? And what did you use to finish it ? Sorry for the questions but I am starting to take my turning a bit more serious .
 
Kind regards Sam,

spending your wife's money again.
 
It reminds me of a curling stone, looks very solid like granite, nice one Derek.

Nice one Derek. I'd like to know what tool do you used to hollow as well. I've found eucalyptus burr grain runs all over the place so getting a good finish is quite difficult.

Thanks one and all.
 
 
Sam and Simon the finish is as simple as sander sealer followed by canauba wax. Inside does follow the outer curve and the walls are about 3/16" thick. the tool used was the robert sorby RS200KT Multi Tip Hollowing Tool

Very nice Derek,
 
 
I can`t make my kind up if i prefer it just as a bowl or with the lid, either way a striking piece.
 
 
 
Cheers.
