Hello Roper

A beautiful work and a question :

“How did you do this piece?”

Thanks for sharing

This was a very fun piece to do. You first start off like any other piece, find center and round your blank. Then move your center point 1/2” from center and create a new tenon to start the hollow form, hollow just like you would a normal HF remembering that you can only measure the one wall on the thinner side. When your done hollowing you need to make a jam chuck with enough room for the neck of the hollow form to sit inside the jam chuck without falling out then finish the bottom .Hope this answers your question. Next time i do one I will try and take photos.
