Red Gum Eucalyptus Hollow Form.
5” diam X 9 1/4” tall. Turned to 3/8 wall.
Finished with Tung oil / Varnish.
Had a lot of fun with this one. This is the first tall hollow form I have had a chance to turn. I recently got a Capture arm hollowing system (Lyle Jamieson System), It works fantastic! Allowed me to reach over 8” deep into this vessel and no torque on my hands or arm trying to steady the tool. Have used it on a few bowls but this was the first try at reaching deep into a piece.
Some people call it cheating to use a capture arm system. I call it smart! There is NO way I could have turned this without it.
I would also like to thank the LJ who gave me this piece of wood. Thank You! ( he has asked not to be named)
I will send a more personal thanks in a PM.
Please leave all comments and suggestions. Thank You for looking. Sorry about the poor pics.
