Spalted Vase

This little vase (6” tall) is the first piece I turned with my new hollowing system and a visual hollowing rig that I put together. I’m not sure what species the vase is (it is FOG wood … found on ground). The lid is Brazilian Cherry.

I got a ‘Simple Hollowing System’ from Harrison Specialties ( http://harrisonspecialties.com/ ) for Christmas. I’ll be posting a review on it after I have had time to give it a little more exercise.

For those interested, here is a more complete write-up on the video gear I am using: http://lumberjocks.com/TheDane/blog/45489 .

That’s certainly a stunning piece of FOG wood! The vase turned out really nice.

Really nice vase!

Never heard or seen a Simple Hollowing System before. Was really disappointed in Kerry Harrison assembly video with no sound. Found people at Amazon & Saw Mill Creek saying they enjoyed using it!

Me neither! One of the guys in my woodturning club mentioned it at our November meeting. I watched the videos on YouTube, found their webpage, and decided to take the leap!

At first blush, I like it. It is precision-engineered, and does exactly what Kerry Harrison says it will do. IMO it is not the kind of system you are going to use for heavy-duty hollowing, but for the work I do (12” and under) it is just the ticket.

The fact that it is an American-made product is a plus in my book.

Looks like one of the best hollowing systems for your lathe. Hope you give us some more outstanding hollow forms!
