That’s a killer hollowing set up you have put together. The bowl is spectactular, and with root balls you never know what you’re going to get, sometimes it’s just a lot of dirt and grit in the middle.

Thanks for sharing.

The bowl is just beautiful. That was a big chunk of wood you started with, but looks like you equipment was up to the job. At first glance, the bottom right picture looked like a cement mixer. ;)

That’s impressive. I’m intrigued by your set-up for hollowing. Could you explain your hollowing rig?

Sure is purdy. I need to dig out my lathe and turn some of my wood that is languishing.
