This was my first attempt at inside out turning. I chose a hot air balloon shaped incense burner made from box elder. You can see in the last shot that the wood is too thin to bore the full balloon shape into it so I stopped short so the wall was not too thin. I didn’t realize the depth I’d have to go to cut out the full gondola. I should have used 2” thick pieces…........next time!! Anyway it works as an incense burner.
I put in a brass cone holder in the bottom piece and ventilated it with 6 holes. The base is relieved for air flow , too. It gets pretty hot in there so I put a brass insert in the top of the bore too so the wood did not get burned.
The last thing I added was a small brass finger to keep the cone holder in the burner when you carry it.
It is 2 1/4” dia. x 7 1/4” high and finished with clear lacquer
