   Here's a geometric turning I thought about trying.  I didn't know it had a name or that it had such mathmatical background untill I researched it.  It's a little long but not to bad.

What a neat piece. I had no idea for a while how you might be hollowing this out. Didn't realize that it was going to have a slot in the top. That makes tons of sense to me now that I've seen it. Looks like ring tools and swan neck tools are heavily called for with this form. Any other pointers you think we need that you didn't share in the video?
Cool

I haven't even tried to turn a doughnut yet.  The idea has just been floating in the back of my pea brain.  One day though.....
