I have made hollow forms before but mostly segmented and the proses is slightly different to the norm. so wen I had the chance to borrow a big brother hollowing tool from the club I jumped at the chance and had a go at a log of ash to have a go at. here is the finished vase the inside is not very good but ok for a first attempt.dscf2548.jpg

Good looking vase Dennis. So it looks like a hollowing tool on the shopping list for you then. I have just ordered the Crown one **LINK** I was on the phone to Mark for nearly an hour making sure this one was the correct one for my needs he is a very helpful person. If you look at his work he does a lot of hollow forms and has used different ones

hi Derek

thank you for the comments. not Shure as yet if I am going to get a hollowing tool think I would have to borrow the clubs again to try and get use to it as the price is rather steep to just be left to the side not getting used. I do like the look of the one in the link you have showed so just watch this space you may see attempt 2 before I take the tool back.

You have got to give it a good try out Dennis so at least another 3 or 4 before you take it backlaugh.

Look forward to the next one, How big is the one above what wood did you use and what have you finished it with

Gorgeous hollow vessel! Like the asymmetrical shape, slightly slanted opening. The wood has lots of character with those stunning figures and colors. Great job Dennis, pretty impressive for a first.

Hi Dennis - You have done this vase credit as I don't think the Big Brother is the easiest of hollowing tools to get on with. I would be interested to hear how you found it and what gap you ended up using to stop the thing clogging up also how wet was the wood ? as I understand that it works better on wet end grain wood to dry wood. - Julian
