very nice work. You’ve created a super looking turning. I like the swoopy figure in the ash. Overall it is a great looking shape topped of with a very nice looking finial.

Dennis, Well done!!!! The turning looks very professional and you can be very proud of your work of art. The wood is really beautiful also.

For hollowing I used a 1/4” bowl gouge and a Cap’n Eddie Castelin 3/8” round bar with a 12mm carbide cutter.

Very nice work very nice indeed! I am hoping for something to come my way from Eddie. Looks like he has nice tools at a fair price.
Make sure you show us your next one too!!!
