Very nice HF Carol for your first. That is well done.
I have to agree with Vaughn and the others. At first the most important thing to me was oh I got to get those walls thin. A friend of mine Larry Hasiak who has helped me a lot and he has been a turner for quite some time at a demo he did said, "everyone needs to do one HF with a tiny hole 1" or smaller. Then do a HF with walls that are 1/8" or less thick. Struggle and work to get them both hollowed. Get it out of your system and be done with it." He said people look at the form and finish. If the form is good and the inside/outside is finished nice people will buy it. He said if you want a small opening put a collar on it. Now most of the HF and bowls I do are 3/8" to 1/4".
