Yes it is a hollow form. I really didn’t get a good angle to show it. The upper lip is actually undercut and when the piece is spinning the hole for the tool is about 2/3 the diameter of the bowl. I had to use a hollowing tool to turn the inside. So it must be a hollow form. ;)

Thanks Broda, LSJ,
No vacuum chuck. This one I mounted between centers. There wasn’t much of an option with this piece. Then I turned the outside and the recess you see (what are they called?) for a four jaw scroll chuck. I left a little extra meat to grab. After turning the inside on the chuck I put it on a jamb chuck and cleaned up the bottom.
