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.

Nice result Bob, like the method and definitely not cheating the final result is what counts for me regardless of how it is achieved.

Very attractive Vase Bob!
I would say it’s just another technique to make a very nice looking vase and a very clever one at that. Cheating never entered my mind here at all. I just see a very well crafted attractive vase! One way or another you aced it!

looks good. I don’t see any joints, could have fooled me.

I may just have to try something in pieces like that.

CHEATER Just kidding. It looks perfect as one piece. That’s a cool green finish. There are a lot of turners doing the same. I almost had to do the same thing a couple times but haven’t yet.

Nice work Bob, If this is cheating, then every segmented turner in the world is guilty.
