I was amazed that a chunk of Wood could end up such a small project. The Chunk of Jacaranda became progressively smaller. By the time I had roughed it down and got rid of the bark and splits and splinters it shrunk into…...A very Small Vase…..4inches tall. 2 1/8 inches around the belly and 1 1/2 inches across the top.
I have never attempted hollowing before and if it was not for the Forstner Bit I would have had a real struggle.
I tried the Bowl Gouge and just couldn’t get the right feel of gently shaving away, instead it shuddered and shook so I quit while the project was still in one piece. I need a lot more practice…...Any suggestions and advice would be most welcome and appreciated….Anyway, it was fun to “have a go”. I didn’t show a picture of under the base. Lets just say “not real pretty” I had visions of a nicely scooped out base but, weeeeeeellll., better luck next time./ Ha, ha,ha.
Thank you very much for looking.
Kind regards to all LumberJocks.
