Thanks Jim. This is a little different for me. I purchased a new 3/4” hollowing bar from Trent Bosch. I was testing it out on a taller vessel.

The grain on the cherry is so nice it didn’t need to be dyed. Love it.

Very nice. This one’s quite tall, and quite pretty. You’ve probably said this before, but how do you get the WOP so smooth? I’ve tried it a number of times, but it seems to love to pool. I’ve used brushes, sponges, and several kinds of rags, but it’s almost impossible not to get streaks, runs, pools, and lumpiness.

Gary, I apply the wipe-on poly with pieces of an old cotton tshirt. I apply multiple thin coats, buffing with 0000 steel wool between coats.

Nice looking vase Joe! Have you ever tried the Munro hollowing tool? I think it is a superior tool for hollowing. Have not had great success with it on spalted wood though, it tends to jam the tool. However on wet green wood, I love it, the shavings just peel and fly off. If you haven’t tried it I would definitely highly recommend it.

Great vase, and I really like the profile at the top of the piece.

Do you use a wheel based support system for your deeper pieces? I made one with rollerblade wheels based on a design circulating on the web, that is pretty much a must for me on anything beyond about 9 inches deep.

Also, Bearpie commented on the Munro tool. I had mixed results with it. overall, like it, but the little blade shroud bent over time and it has been impossible to find another one so far. Can you give some feedback on the Bosch tool?

Cheers,
Richard

Joe this is a really beautiful piece. Is there a big difference from the 5/8” and the 3/4” tool going to that depth?
