This is a chunk of walnut i got from socal, you may remember my wood gloat photos from a few months back. This hollow form is 10 inch across and 5 inchs deep, the wall are alittle over 1/4 inch thick. finished with tung-oil and buffed.all comments and questions welcome. enjoy. just a side note the other block that came with this one didn’t make it, i just dried out to fast up here in the mountains.

Nice. I just got my first hollowing tool (Munro), so I’m gathering ideas :) What tools do you use for hollowing?
