This one looks more like a hollow form I think
I was afraid to thin the inside to much as it might crack and come apart
It's about 3/8" thick and varies some but I'm still proud of it
Eastern red cedar with a lot of coats of ***
What do you think about it

Geez you two :blush:
I know you both can do that good or better
actually i tried something on the top half
I used my micro mesh and wet sanded but that didnt go like i hoped but i did use extra fine steel wool between every coat
I am happy with how it turned out:yes::yes:

Ghost may be able to do better, but I can show proof of my hollowform disasters :laughing: (and that goes for my attempt to hollow out a ball for a tree ornament too!)

Thanks for this tip, I've got some steel wool but never think to use it.

I can't do hollow forms I don't have the tools needed and if I use *** it looks like a 3 year old chimp did it. Ok why was I thinking you aren't supposed to use steel wool on ***?
Could it be you're thinking of water-based versus oil-based? The directions on MinWax Water-based Polyacrylic are clear about not using steel wool (maybe it causes rust stains?)
