    Finished a Burr Oak hollow form or vase which ever 🙂 it’s been turned from a piece of boiled timber which was black on the outside. Size 280mm x 140mm finished with Danish oil and bees wax. Hollowed with the Robert Sorby Sovereign hollowing system which I was trying out.

    Ed 🙂

    Thanks Brody 🙂

    The Sorby cuts like a dream, I now have two hollowing tools the Revolution and the Sovereign. I think that I prefer the Sorby Sovereign for the adjustment on cut. But the head size is much better on the Revolution if you’re wanting to hollow through a smaller entrance.

    I’m going to test the Simon Hope one next and then do a review and video on hollowing tools. I think they all have their place but if you just want one tool then I think that something like this would show the pro’s and con’s for each type of tool.

    Ive had the Revolution,  but just couldn’t get on with it.  I’ve got  the 10mm and the new 6mm Hope tools, and they are my go to tools for hollowing.  Especially the  6mm with the cranked tip, what a cracker!

    The Sorby Soverrign System works well Woody the only issue is the size of the head, but if you’re doing vases then there’s no problem. I think like everything it could be useful to have two types of hollowing tool.
