Hey, I am a complete newbie to all the wood turning buisness but my dad has just got hooked on it as a hobbie. My dad has a lot of the tools nessasary but is missing a tool that he has wanted for a while. The tool has something to do with hollowing out a peice of wood to make a nice vace or anything with a hollowed out center. If someone could please give me any information or a link on such a tool or where to buy one that would be really helpful.

Thanks!

Check out the carving tools from Woodcraft. They have a marvelous selection. They also have a very good selection of turning tools.

Do you mean hollowing out, as on a lathe?

there are several hollowing tools out there… I know that as far as what I want goes, I am fairly particular on what I want. I would casually bring it up in conversation again and find out exactly what he’s looking at.
