Real nice Ron, nice wood and nice finish. Must look up that Carter Hollower.

Beautiful job Ron. Also will add, the Carter Hollower is a great addition to turning.

Another beautiful vase Ron…always a pleasure to see your work. Did you make a router jig or something to make those long grooves up the side of the vase….it looks really nice.

great vase. I saw it over on WTU, but I have connectivity issues there & could not comment. I’m glad you posted a picture next to a chair, as it gives a great idea on how deep you hollowed. Super job.

Dave yes I made a router table and router sled to be able to flute the sides of the vase. Now if I could only visualize how Michelletwo does her platter I would be happy.. Thanks guys for all the comments. The Hollow Roller Xl will be at the AAW and I will be working the booth too. Stop by and see me.

Great job! I have looked into the Carter Hollow roller, so far I have talked myself out of it twice. I have watched their video, and other video reviews about it, and got the impression it would only go 9 – 10 inches deep. Did you kick it up a notch, or is it right out of the box that deep? Keep up the good work. Thanks!!

Yes this was done with the Carter Hollow Roller Xl. It is much bigger than the standard Hollow Roller. With the Standard hollow Roller you can only go about 13 inches. This is almost 23 inches. You can go as deep as 30 inches with the Hollow Roller Xl
