Why hollow through a tiny hole if you don’t have to. For this long neck vase I hollowed it from the bottom then plugged the hole with matching wood.
Watch out for hanging out so far from the spindle. I used my DIY steady rest to stabilize the long spindle.
My cedar was harvested near Portland Oregon. An arborist identified it as Titan Cedar, a close relative of biblical cedars of Lebanon.
My vase is about 2 inches diameter and 8 inches tall finished with lacquer buffed to a high gloss.
