how much of the inside of a hollow vessal dose one sand and finish? on a deep vessal do you lumber jocks have a tool you use ? i usually finish mine about the first three inches of the inside .i’m not talking about shallow turnings such as bowls.

I finish what is visible and accessible. If I can’t see it or reach it, I don’t worry about it.

Dean,when it gets beyond my safe reach I use these flap disks with a extension on my drill. They come in sizes from 1/2’’ dia. and up in all different grits. Found them online. Lot of other times I use a sanding head purchased at woodcraft. Hope this helps.
