Hollow Master

Hello fellow wood turners. My wife bought me the Sorby Hollow Master for Christmas. Someone suggested I get it if I wanted to make hollow forms or closed ended bowl. Now that I have it, I am a bit nervous to go at it for the first time. Anybody have any suggestions or you tube videos they would use for a beginner to hollow forms?

I highly recommend taking very light cuts with that tool until you get comfortable with it. I would also suggest hollowing a bowl or some vessel that you can see inside for your first attempt. Cut at or slightly above center and just play with the cuts to get a feel for the tool.
