no previous part Part 1 of Hollow Form Turning - A Trifern Class series Part 2: Wood Selection »

Hello, I will be offering an online class here on Lumberjocks. Please sign up in the comments area below.

Over the next several weeks I will be showing a step by step process for creating a hollow form vessel on the lathe. You should have some basic wood turning skills and some basic tools before attempting this project. When in doubt, error on the side of safety.

Suggested Tools
1/2” or 5/8” bowl gouge with fingernail grind
1/2” or 5/8” straight hollowing tool
1/2” or 5/8” bent hollowing tool
parting tool
faceplate or chuck

I use and recommend either Trent Bosch or John Jordan gouges and hollowing tools.

Areas we will cover:
wood selection
grain orientation
form and shaping
hollowing
sanding
parting off
finishing

Please ask questions at any time.

Thank you,
Joe Landon
