Make Hollowing Tools and Fantastic Vessels and Hollowforms

In order to make hollowforms such as vases, vessels, ornaments, and urns, I needed to make a tool that would extend through the narrow opening and into the interior of my piece.

This woodturning tool will allow the creation of wooden hollow forms such as ornaments, vases, vessels, urns, and other interesting designs. The technique for making a hollowing tool is adapted from master woodturner David Ellsworth's book, "Ellsworth on Woodturning: How a Master Creates Bowls, Pots, and Vessels"

Materials needed for this project:
- Steel Rod for tool shank
- M2 High Speed Steel for cutting edge
- Hardwood for Handle
- (Optional) Pipe or cord for feral
- Epoxy
- CA Glue
