Nice work. What did you use to hollow it?

I use the Carter Hollow Roller with the laser light. I have been using it prior to it going to market. I do tool testing for Carter and get to use and critique tools prior to production. The Hollow roller has been a wonderful tool and has allowed me to do more hollow forms. I soon will be working with the Hollow Roller XL. Have gone to almost 27 inches with it and they have added a laser light.

Hey guys thanks for the comments and the looks. Yes cedar does smell great in the shop. Should have some hampsters for the shavings. It is hard to turn as I had 3 others and 2 cracked while I turned them. It was very wet and I was turning thin. The 3rd piece I cracked when I added some shellac that was DNA based and when I added the finished it almost blew apart. Will turn some more.
