Mahagony hollow vessel

I turned this Sunday while I was waiting for the glue to dry on my table top on the shaker candle stand.
It is 3/4" tall and hollowed out. It's difficult to get the shavings out. You have to take much smaller cuts to make the shaving really tiny.

John, don't take this wrong, but did you ever consider
professorial help?




That is just beautiful.

HOLY CRAP THAT'S A GIANT PENNY!

Sooo.... what kind of chuck do you have to use to make this? And when do the ants want it back?

:D I was wondering why it was so pitted. I just noticed it's because I can see the cells in the wood. o.0

Hollowing tool for this = ... a paper clip!?!?

I have no idea how you did it.

I've been told I need professional help but I thought they were talking about ladies of the evening. Do you mean I need something else. :)
I think I used small finishing nails for these. I have tools down to .015" thick to allow me to do really small stuff. this is kind of large. This vase is equal to about 8" in doll house scale. I have done some that are 4" so about half that size.

I couldn't even see something that small on the lathe to be able to work it. I guess your wood scraps go a long way though. It looks cool John.

John, I really don't have any place to talk, here are
the cylinder heads for the model I am working on.
The hard part is painting the logo, my paint brush
doesn't have "spell check"!

Those cylinder heads look pretty cool. I would like to see what else you've done.

Awesome. No matter what size it is, it's still cool. Sometimes, the small project are the best ones. Just a little something for a sanity check.
I love it.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
