Huon Pine Hollow Vessel

Author: David Lim   Date Posted:29 June 2016 

This vessel is 100mm high and about 80mm at it's widest point. Huon Pine is wonderful to turn and gives out a marvelous smell. Its like putting a hot knife through butter.

I started with a 100mm x 100mm x 150mm long turning blank.

I turned the square blank to round with a Spindle Roughing Gouge

I then used both the roughing gouge and a skew chisel to shape the outside of the vessel.

A drill bit was used to start the hollow out, then used a spindle gougle to hollow out the center and a swan neck hollowing tool to get behind the lip.

Was a easy project and taught me some good foundations for turning a hollow vessel.
