I have now turned 60 hollow forms in the last 3 months. During the Covid-19 shutdown. So far so good. They have kept the doctor away.

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/
I just opened my new “CarlFordWoodturner” shop on etsy! Please shop early and often!
My high quality pieces are priced to sell! You win because I have a lot of pieces that I want to sell!
I am going to add more stuff over the next couple of days. Then I hope to add 2 new pieces per week.
There are also never seen before pictures of my stuff.

7-1/2" diameter. 7-3/4" tall. Cherry wood.
The blank was a little out of balance. But, it did NOT give me any trouble. My new Powermatic 3520C lathe, handled it, no problem. Continue reading 1st Hollow Form on New Powermatic 3520C Lathe
