Mike Jackofsky - Masur Birch Hollow Form

This demo explores the process of creating a hollow vessel “form”.
By skipping the process of removing the wood from the inside of a hollow vessel, this allows Mike to concentrate on the most important aspect of making his work – the shape!

This will cover the process of orienting the wood between centers to take advantage of the unique features of the material, making a tenon, mounting in a chuck, dealing with natural edges and defects, and getting clean cuts with a bowl gouge.

Does NOT cover the hollowing process, so this is a fun, fast paced demo to watch!
