Had this small piece of spalted maple left over and decided to make a small hollow form turning.

Very nice piece, I really like to make small turnings. How did you hollow it and what did you us for a finish?

Very cool, that is either a very small turning or a very large penny. :-)

very unique indeed, I don’t think I have any tools that are small enough to make a vessel like this one. Where did you get your tools or did you make them?

Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful. It is hard to find wood grain that will look good on a small turning like this one. But you nailed it with this one. I have a few of these on my projects page. Always love to see the small stuff. Thanks for sharing!

Here is a picture of the tool that i use. It is small 1/8” square hss tool bit steel ground like a scraper. It is small and fits good in hand for control. I can turn the tool to the side just like you would hollow out a large HF.
