    Great tutorial, you may even be able to sell it to a wood working mag.

    I like your wrench trick. I have used it myself. Glad to find out I am not going to weird figuring this out on my own.

    Have a lathe and very little training, but having fun when I get to play with it.

    Ditto what everyone said, Very clear, and THANKS!!!

    I love the wrench trick. I wish I'd thought of it. Heck, I think that means I have a set of calipers in metric and sae.

    Nice tutorial, I picked up quite a few tips that should help alot in my attempts! Thanks!
    If at first you don't succeed, look in the trash for the instructions.

    Thanks for the tutorial Curt. I have been wondering how these are made.
    It’s only work if somebody makes you do it.
    A day can really slip by when you're deliberately avoiding what you're supposed to do.
    Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side, a dark side and it binds the universe together.

    Curt:
    What kind of grind do you put on your homemade hollowing tool? I have one but I can't seem to get a very good grind on it.
    BTW, that one turned out great!
    Thanks again, for showing your technique.

    All the best.

    I liked the ornament even before you provided a "finished" shot. Thought it WAS finished!! The little cylindrical look has given me ideas for next year!!
