These are my first attempts at doing hollow form turning.
Each one is hollowed out to reduce weight, and four of them have tiny bell in the center you can see through the holes drilled in the globe.
I wish I would have used better quality stock … 8 of them are turned from SPF from the big box, and most of the finials and icicles are turned from poplar. I was just reluctant to use expensive, exotic wood for fear I would just destroy them. As it turned out, I only had one blowout … 12 out of 13 ain’t bad.
