This vase is one of my early pieces and I thought some of you might like to see it.
I had a lengthy discussion with a very experienced turner about DEEP Hollowing, and he passed a couple of tricks on to me. This is the result of that discussion.
The vase is made from pine planks glued together and then hollowed out bit by bit.
I cut out about 3 inches at a time and then parted off that hollow piece and moved on to the next bit. Then when it was all done I glued the “Sleeves” back together and disguised the joins with grooves. It looks very like one piece but is in fact 5 pieces.
The vase measures 6in dia and is 16in tall.
I was assured that this method is not “Cheating”.
Thanks for looking.
