Joe, if you have a compressor you can buy a dental drill the kind dentists use. A compressor, air regulator, and the drill which I purchased on e-bay and you can use it to cut thin wood and other thin materials like using a pen. The wood must be thin that is why I had to turn the vases to 1/8” thick.

These are superb Tom. So delicate and perfect.
I like the marine theme as well, dear to my heart.
Very nice work.

Very nice work. I bought the piercing tools but haven’t worked up the gumption to use them yet.

HFs?

Ummmmm – - – Harbor Freights?

High Frequency? Heart Failure? Hedge Fund? High Fidelity? Harrison Ford? Hip Fracture? High Five? Hemorrhagic Fever? How about Happy Face? Haze Filter? Hydro Foil? Or even Hemochromatosis Foundation?
Just guessing here.

Sorry, I guess I committed the sin of assumption. HF is a term used in woodturning meaning a piece of wood turned to shape then hollowed out such as the vases shown. HF stands for hollow form.
