Sycamore Hollow form
Mar 17th, 2016 at 6:24pm
 
This is my second hollow form. This piece is 8-1/2" tall by 7" W   The wood is plain and unremarkable so I embellished it with Oak leaves and pyrographic work. It was a challenge for me since I hadn't learned to use my Monster system very well yet. It really works well, but like everything else it requires experience. The photo is not very good either but it will have to work.

Nice work Breck, I recently aquired the Vicmarc articulated hollowing system, as you have alluded to it does take practice. I am holding off deep hollowing until I can get a 3/4  or 1" Bar.
What wall thickness did go for on this piece?

Bert, The top hole is 1-1/2" wide but the wall thickness throughout is approx. 1/2"

That's very nice pyrography work and it's just grabs your eye! It's easy to see that and miss what an excellent form you put it on.

I like the oak leaf work. It really adds to the piece.
Is it the picture angle?, but it looks to be a little short for the width to me.

John I would say it is, like I said my second one so I learned a great deal on this one. I twice turned this one and from now on I plan on green turning to finish. I really didn't try to get the form like it should have been when I rough turned it. Then when I started finish turning it my tenon was way too long and just never got it right. I felt like the wood was plain and would be good practice wood. When I started finishing this one I realized I could maybe get it to a state it would sell so I left it at that. Undecided

The canvass gets pretty big when doing hollow forms doesn't it.  Looking forward to you doing some piercing and burning on thin forms.  Let me know if you want some guidance on video hollowing.  Makes it a lot easier to get thin.
