This is a new group of mini hollow forms I have been working on as practice for my minis turning demo in Feb. The tallest one is 1 1/2” tall and the widest one is 1” wide. so they are pretty small. All hollowed out to about 1/16” thick walls. Various finishes. All comments and questions welcome.

That small to 1/16” must have been a little difficult. Of course, I’m someone who has not yet turned anything consistently to even 1/8”, so what do I know. I like your variety of shapes, and they all seem to have fair curves and nice lines. Question: the darker one, center front, is it wobbly to stand up with such a narrow base? Would it be very wobbly if it was seven or eight inches wide?

Roper, these remind me of the Travellers sample miniture booze bottles, dead true to scale
Think I would need to upgrade my glasses to try this small :)
Neat turning on a small scale, well done
