Proof of concept
I've had this idea kicking around in my head for a while, a different take on a hollow form. Donut shaped and hollowed from the inside edge.
I'm still refining my approach, but I think it has promise. This is my first attempt and the piece was secured to the wooden jam chuck with hot melt glue. In order to hollow it out I will need to flip it over, the last time I flipped this sample I didn't use enough glue and it was torn free from the jam chuck. I either need to rethink my approach or use more glue (or both).
As it sits it's only partially hollowed, about 1/4 to 1/3 done, but it will remain as is for at least a week. I'm headed to California for work all next week. I fly out first thing Monday morning and return late Friday night. Longest I've been away from home in close to 3 years.
