About to start in hollow forms
I just got a Munro Hollower2 and am planning to get started in hollow forms - I've turned some bowls so I figured I'd move towards a vase shape for starters. I just watched the John Jordan video from 1992 and what I'm still unclear on is whether hollow forms are twice turned like bowls, turned green, or turned from dry wood. I'm sure the answer is "all three", but what's most popular? Since the wood is mounted with the grain parallel to the bed of the lathe, either the pith is left in the center of the form, or much bigger logs than I'm used to are used so you can split down the middle to get the pith out and still have a decent sized blank left from half the diameter of the log which is probably cut close to square before mounting.
