    Thanks for posting this...this wil help out the uninitiated in hollow form turning (e.g., me). I appreciate the time and effort you put into composing this tutorial.

    Great tutorial Steve, Do you have a preference of using the faceplate rather than a woodworm screw or starting off between centers? It seems like you're either losing a fair amount of wood off the top of the blank by the time you get down far enough to remove the screw holes or you're forced to use an opening larger than the diameter of the screw holes.

    Thanks
    Jason

    Thanks everyone for all the kind comments! I was hoping this would show that hollow forms are easy to turn and just require a few extra steps - no big deal!

    Jason - I use the faceplate only on very large blanks and use the inner circle of holes for the screws. That way I know the blank is securely mounted and the holes it creates in the blank are located within the region I plan to remove anyway. Most of the time - hollow forms or bowls - I use the woodworm screw.
