-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice, Tom. Turning to 1/8” is quite brave in my book!
Thanks for posting.

Very impressive. I agree with Marty – 1/8” thin is quite brave. You must have a very patient personality. Thanks for sharing

Very nice work, Tom. Because I’m not a turner, is there a certain method for piercing the vase? Just curious.

Steve, I pierce using a dental drill, very high speed (400K-RPM) but very low torque or power so that necessitates very thin material.
