I just started turning hollows and this is one of the successful ones. (I have a bunch of funnels) I am using the Kobra hollowing system from Indiana Inovators. Blistered hard Maple 3 X 5 1/2. Watco oil and Beall buffed.

Beautiful stuff Terry. I love that maple grain pattern. I would love to see how your hollowing system works. Thanks for sharing.
