This is a large walnut vase, 17 inches tall. Just a simple shape vase. 8 inches across at the top. Need to improve the shape. Could have been narrower at the neck Turned on my Powermatic 3520 and hollowed with the Carter Hollow Roller XL

C & C Welcome

Jim the Hollow Roller you saw at Woodcraft is the original. I am using the Hollow Roller Xl and I added two photos of that device. The boring bar is about 65 pounds and made of 1.25 solid steel. A bit bigger than the one at Woodcraft.

Grumpy if you look you will see I am out of the firing line when hollowing. My body and I are well away from the work. Yes I do wear my safety shield when turning :{
