Day 168: Take two

Another attempt at a multi axis hollow form today.  The inside is hollowed first and then the piece is moved off center for the multi axis portion of the turning.

The piece ended up cracking late in the multi axis portion of the turning but I'm OK with that.  It was a success in that I learned that a taller narrower form will show off the twist better as will a less rounded top and a less rounded bottom.  The rough edges would have been cleaned up with a small sanding drum to produce a finished edge.  That will have to wait for the next attempt.
