That is just -wow! How do you fit it so perfectly?

Thank you all!
Christine- it’s not what I do, it’s what I don’t do.
I don’t start with a square blank, and I don’t make it completely round. A square goes to round pretty quickly, a rectangle takes longer. I stop somewhere in between the 2. I hope this helps.

Beautiful work, hairy.

Hairy , do you knock , knock , knock…..the wood until it forms a round shape , or do you cut a V shape on one end of the rectangle first , to speed up the process ?

Dusty, I rough it to shape with a spindle roughing gouge. It’s basically spindle turning. The next step was to mount it in a chuck and hollow it.

Thanks , Hairy…..I guess I was assuming that the rectangular shape would “catch” the gouge more often than not. I’ll have to give one a whirl : )

HairyGood work buddy. I once heard a song about somthing in a bottle.Arlin
PS I really like the flat. I think most turners have to turn round and forget about the object’s charm
