Beautiful wood and excellent work.If I may ask, what is your method of hollowing these?Large spur bit first or is the hollowing all done with turning tools?

No idea how this was done, but if I were doing one, I’d do it as a coopering project, like building a barrel or bucket. Cut the staves, glue them up, mount anf turn on the lathe. This way you have no more than about 1/4 inch to remove in any part of the piece.

There are 2 ways i found through trial and error. I take a true 2×2 of soft wood like pine or cedar and glue a 4 pieces ( 2-2” and 2 4”) all together.I usually just take a 2×2 1/2 and glue 2 pieceseto it and then plan it down, then glue the 4” of same or diffrent wood to it.I use a series of auger bits and then turnign tools to lathe out the center.
Very time consuming
