Woah. What is the wall thickness of these pieces? Man, I am going to buy a lathe sooner rather than later. Between you and Trifern (and others who I draw a blank on for names), this is really cool stuff.

Beautiful hollow forms!did you make the mini tools? could you maybe elaborate on the construction of the tools?

Very cool, I just discovered the Jasco Tung Oil (available at all big box stores) doesn’t darken Redwood Burl nearly as much as Tung Oil and gives a better shine, just a suggestion, depends on what the desired end result is wanted.

It really amazes me how you all do the turnings that you do. I could only hope that I will be that good some day.

Thanks for all the great feedback guys and gals. Mike the tools you see in the pics are electritions probes from Tool king that i ground into mini hollowing tools, the steel is not the best but they hold a good edge for small jobs. if i get some time i will do a blog about minis if you guys are interested, let me know.
