    I asked on the video, and will ask again here, since I will guess I am not the only one who wants to know, what is the hook tool that you use for roughing out the inside??? I must have one, I think.... Don't think I have seen that one before.

    Are you concerned that the pith on the bottom will continue to crack? Will the oil finish stop the cracking?

    I admire your creative vision. I could never have seen that finished product coming from that chunk of wood. Nice work!
