In this class, you will learn how to hollow out a deep vase (hollow form) through only a two inch hole. See Photo below. This is a very hard thing to do with standard bowl tools owned by most wood turners. This class will require the above tool set in order to safely complete the project with much less risk of "blowout" while hollowing out the inside walls. Instruction on finishing tips is included, as well as turning a lid to go on the vessel if desired.

Turned Vase

Class size limited to two students, each with a separate lathe to use.
