First attempt at a hollow form. Not completely satisfied with the shape but it still came out alright. Wood is poplar from a standing dead tree that I cut. It was rotten through the centre with good spalted wood around it. Hollowing this guy was really easy. Comments critiques welcome.

That’s really neat, if you put a hole on top you can make a lamp or something.

Or, a plant vase and you can see the roots.

Great hollow form James!

It’s amazing what you can do with an “Ordinary” piece of wood.
Great job.


-- 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.

It was just turned on the lathe. Nothing special.
