Thanks for all the great feedback guys.Pete my eye sight is not the best so I have a bunch of lights hanging over my lathe so I can really see what I’m doing. I have posted pics of my mini hollowing tools before, they are in the pics with my mini redwood burl hollow forms, so you can see them over there if you want.
