Thanks to the chap from Boston for the Walnut, hope I`ve done your off cuts credit Jonlar.

Bought a new hollowing system whilst at the Harrogate show & was itching to try it out, them`s the result.

All abuse happily received & ignored :lol: :lol:

Thanks for looking.

Perhaps.

Very nice Doug except for the handles - you seem to have forgotten them or are they push to open?

lovely work, Doug!
I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, but it was some b*stard with a torch bringing me more work!

Which hollowing system did you get?

Saw a bloke demonstrating one of these yesterday, and it looked very good to use, although not a massive depth of cut: http://www.easywoodtools.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Carbide tip but no shield to get clogged, also the square shaft means the tip is always at the correct cutting angle
