Maple hollow form aniline dyed 4” tall 3 1/2” W finished with wipe on poly. While hollowing this one out I had a catch and it broke it off at the spigot holding it in the chuck. I drilled a hole in the bottom and turned a block in the chuck with a tendon and glued it over night on the lathe using the tail stock as a clamp. Next day I finished hollowing and it held great. I really didn’t want to waste this nice piece of wood, Thanks for looking.

Man, that is beautiful, Lou!! Nice way to save a piece you have some time invested in.
How bid of hole did you have to work through ? What hollowing tool do you use?

that is some fine work. How in the world did you get that finish. Almost looks like glass. Like to know what you used if you don’t mind telling me.
