Hi Ray, those are really neat and turned out great. Thanks for the shots of how you set them up to turn. How did you slice the original hollow turning apart? On the band saw?

Congratulations, success! I’ve attempted this style of turning in the past but I have not achieved a nice success like you have created.

Very attractive turning, and one that looks like it was quite challenging from the perspective of a non-turner. I’m sure your lady is going to love it.

Jim the initial turning of the inside they are held together with only a few drops of ca glue. I added a bead of ca glue on the very end for good measure. With 2 sets of cole jaws clamping them together I figured it was good enough. Some people use the strapping tape. Then I used a chisel and hammer to bust apart t at the ends
