This was a challenge to me, as this piece started as a chunk of wood on a curb. Someone chopped down a large white oak, and I picked it up chainsawed it into smaller pieces and threw it on the lathe. Until now I have only done a couple of these and I will put them online later.
This was my first hollowing job with a new carbide hollowing tool, and also my first attempt at doing a captive ring.
The finish was a “yes” water based Urethane, from Woodcraft (called turners finish) and was applied with a “unique” jig my neighbor had made for cups we had already finished and prematurely removed from the lathe. (we will finish the cups before we remove them from the lathe from now on)
I hope you enjoy, and please post feedback I am still learning the trade.
