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?

I like those. Small turnings are not easy. thats some talent there.

ps you should post a picture of one with a quarter or something as a frame of reference.

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
