Mike Jackofsky - Maple Burl Hollow Form

The entire process of making a small, restricted opening hollow form, using both straight and bent tools. Mike will shape and hollow a 4 – 6” vessel, using 3/8” tools. Vessels in this size are a great way to make use of small blocks of unique and interesting wood. There is an “instant gratification” aspect of hollowing pieces in this size range, where you can get a project completed without spending all day on one piece.

After getting some experience, most turners have an easy time with forms this size, so it’s a great way to break into hollowing vessels through a small opening without a lot of tools!
