Hollow form interior

When doing a hollow form with a smallish entry (7/8 in) , how smooth should you attempt to aspire to ? i would imagine my first ones may be a little bumpy way down but as i do more should I go for a good off the tool finish ?

Scott, personally, I think you should finish the interior, to the best of your abilities. I can't see you doing anything less, there's always someone checking out how you finish an item inside and out.

Scott, there are two deciding factors in determining how well you finish the inside: 1) how far can your (our someone else's) finger reach inside and feel; and 2) how visible is the inside of the HF?  Besides your personal pride, these are the two things that determine how smooth the inside of your HF should be.

Good luck Scott.

The "finger test" is what I was thinking, with a tooled finish the rest of the way.
