Hollow forms turned through a small opening were always a challenge for me to turn.  In this demo I’ll show how I make hollow forms, using green wood, much like you make lidded boxes only I’ll glue the lid back on.  Not only is there less risk of turning through the side of your vessel but it is also easier to gauge the wall thickness as well as remove the shavings from the inside.  I’ll focus on techniques for making a precise joint to help insure that the piece stays together as it dries.  Time will be spent demonstrating various ways to then hide the seem in your vessel.  This vessel will also have handles.
