New Products and AAW Symposium 

It has been a busy month! We finished the filming of a new video, put into production several new products and even had some time to turn. We are excited to see many of you at the annual AAW Symposium in Atlanta, GA. Please stop by and visit us. We are in the trade show area in booths T4 & T5. 

Happy Turning, 
We are excited to announce that we have a new DVD coming soon: Revelations in Hollowing: 25 years of Refining the Process. 
Over the past 25 years professional woodturner and instructor Trent Bosch has not only been making thousands of hollow forms, but going over every aspect of the process and refining it. Through the development of new techniques and equipment, he has made hollow forms more precise and accessible than ever before.

He takes you step by step through the process, showing you multiple approaches, allowing you to decide which works best for you. 

In this video he shares his knowledge of this process with you in a straightforward, easy to understand manner. Take your hollowing skills to the next level with this instructional video.

Over 2.5 hours of relevant Information!!

For those of you who aren't quite ready for a Visualizer yet we have an exciting new product to announce. Due to popular demand we're now offering Stabilizer Laser Bars designed specifically for my Stabilizer. This set up comes complete with everything, including the laser and all hardware to attach to both the 5/8" and 3/4" Stabilizers. One of the coolest parts about it is that the laser is micro adjustable at the head allowing you to adjust it to just the right spot easily.

We are going to continually add content and give this social media thing a try. 
For more than 10 years I have been exclusively using Mirka sandpaper from Steve Worcester at It is a great product, lasts really well and the back never comes off due to heat. He also stamps the back of each disc with the grit allowing you to easily re-use knowing exactly what grit you are using. Sanding is not my favorite thing, but using a quality product like this makes it a lot less painful. Check out Steve's products at you will not be disappointed.

We will be in booth T4 and T5. Come and visit us to take advantage of our show special and buy some new tools!
I have been hollowing for a long time and over the years have developed some techniques that allow me to judge the wall thickness and understand where I am hollowing better. 

When you are hollowing,use the tools almost as if they are an extension of your hand or a finger sticking inside the vessel. Feel around with the tool - not necessarily completely cutting but just rubbing it against the wall and feeling where you are at. Stop the lathe and look in your vessel with a flashlight make sure you were working in the section in the vessel you thought you were working in. Also observe the interior shape vs the exterior shape. You eventually want them to be very similar but with the inside smaller than the outside. You could also use your fingers. Feel inside your vessel, pinching the wall as far down as you possibly can. Then bring your hand back up toward the top of the vessel. You will be able to feel variations in thickness. 

When you are hollowing the sound the cutting action makes can key you off to the wall thickness. The higher pitched the cutting sound is the thinner your wall is. 

Using a mechanical caliper or bent wire can give you a good idea of what your wall thickness is as well. When using such calipers make sure that you are getting a perpendicular reading across the wall. If it is more of a diagonal reading across the wall it is not going to be accurate and will show you there is more wall thickness that there actually is. 

Lastly learn from your mistakes. Should you hollow through the wall of your vessel use it as a learning experience. Obviously you were too thin in one spot, but how did you do in the rest of the vessel? With practice you should become fairly proficient at knowing what your wall thickness is in your vessels. 

Even when I am using the Visualizer I still utilize all these techniques to help myself understand exactly what is happening inside the vessel.
