Mini Walnut Hollow Form.

I decided to take a trick from Roper and try my hand at a Miniature Hollow Form.

This is 2 1/4 inch tall X 1 3/4 inch diam. with a 1/2 inch opening, turned to less then a 1/8 inch wall. Not as small as his, but maybe next time.

Claro walnut. Sanded to 400 grit then Buffed with RED TRIPOLI and WHITE DIAMOND, with a final wax polish.

This last weekend I met up with a friend of mine and he gifted me several boxes of wood. (Thank you VERY much) I had not gotten a chance to turn any thing until tonight. (Figured I better get some thing made as it is my daughters birthday.) haha

Please leave all comments and critiques. I welcome all comments. Thanks for looking.

Very nice piece, Dan. That must be a bear getting it turned inside when it is that small. I’ll have to try that but I first have to make me some mini tools to get in the hole. ............Jim
