I decided to self quarantine myself for 2 weeks after I returned from a rafting trip to Costa Rica on March 17th. Then Governor Cuomo added a few more weeks.

I decided to turn one hollow form a day to keep the doctor away. See photos. 21 hollow forms in roughly 3 weeks.

I turned all of these hollow forms using my new Done In One Day method. See my “Done In One Day” blog entry. http://carlford.info/blog/2020/02/done-in-one-day-vases/ and my “Sanding Wet Wood” blog entry. http://carlford.info/blog/2020/03/sanding-wet-wood/

Updated: 4/23/2020. The vases are now for sale on my CarlFordWoodturner Etsy Store

I recently completed the above vases in a little over a week. One per day!

I needed to turn a vase in one day for a student demo. From green log to sanded, painted and finished vase in one day. It worked! No cracks and the vase dried out nicely.

I love having pieces that I don’t need twice turn, and/or paint and finish latter. I am still playing around and experimenting. So far, so good.
