For this video, I wanted to combine two useful techniques. First, to rough turn a green wood project, seal it, and let it dry. The second, to split a project in half and hollow from the middle out to both ends.
I became impatient with the locust wood I had selected. So, I substituted some green cherry that I rough turned into a billet two years ago. So this is a modified first objective.
After roughing out the vase, I parted it in half. Then since it was already dry, I proceeded to hollow both the lower section and the upper section. Since it was now already dry, I then glued the two pieces back together. Then proceeded to finish my cherry vase. My vase is three inches diameter and seven inches tall finished with walnut oil.
