Now I think I probably should have given myself credit as the author.



Yes, most definitely.
If this is the final version I would be able to insert your name in the pdf.

Unless you can see any changes that would make it more correct or better, it can be the final version.

Looks good to me.  Very clear explanation of the process.

What Jim said, pretty easy to follow and I like the piece you used in the PDF, nice shape and the plug couldn't be seen. That will make folks wonder how you managed to hollow it with such a tiny hole. I may have to give this one a try myself.  smiley=thumbsup.gif

Great. Thanks.

Since I've only been turning for a little over a year and a half, it seems strange to do a tutorial for you guys.

So far, I have the one from the PDF and another one finished and another that is due for the flip completed. They are fun to do and I think I'll add this style and maybe even make some that get finished without a hole that will be strictly display with no other function. So many new possibilities.

Was able to work on mine at Dad's Saturday morning.  Was able to get the outside turned and sanded, the large bulb hollowed.  Still need to fit the plug, glue it in, drill the neck, and finish turning the neck.  I very well may turn the neck down to just a touch larger than the 3/8" drilled hole I'm going to drill.  I'd say that I'm under an hour from starting to applying finish.

BTW, I intended to take progress pics.  I have a pic of the log I started with and a pic of where I am now.  Nothing in between.  Maybe with the next one.

OK here's the finished product and another one I made from scrub oak. You be the judge on how well I did at hiding the plug.

Looks pretty good to me.  I like them both.  The scrub oak I especially like since it does have some nice coloring in the wood.  Well done on them both.  Maybe I can complete mine this weekend and get it posted.  Looking forward to getting back to it.

The grain on the first one makes it look almost like it is 2 pieces of wood.  The second is my favorite.

That's a funny thing about where the light source is from and how it is oriented to your eye. The transition from the neck and the body is very sharp so it does make you think that is where the joint is. But if you look at it from the top down, the color changes and you see clearly that that is not where the joint is.

I do prefer the shape of the oak one better though. The willow one was my first attempt.

there you have it.  About 7" tall and 3" diameter at the widest.  Fun project.  Learned a few things too.  Next one I will fit the bottom better.  Had to redo the original plug because it became too thin and got cut loose on one side.  Just need to do a little better planning.  Thoughts?
CoolRev. Doug Miller Edit in:  This is some Hackberry that my Dad just had cut down.  Green as it gets.  Had some real nice curls flying off the gouge.  Son watched in amazement for a bit and then ran off to play with the chickens.  Still a fun time.   Grin
