Demo 1—Hollow Form Basics
Demo 2—Thin Walled Goblet
Hollow Form Basics. Lyle will concentrate on foundation elements of hollowing, chucking methods, tool control, boring bar use, and laser measuring techniques.
Thin Walled Goblet. Lyle will turn a 1/16" wall thickness goblet with focus on design, grain orientation, vibration issues, and using a bowl gouge for spindle work.
Lyle’s trademark is hollow forms. His primary influence came from exploring non-functional turning. He is the inventor/creator of the Jamieson Hollow Form Turning System for safer, in-control hollowing that is fun too. The system creates a rest behind the main tool rest which simplifies the hollowing process. A turner can stand beside the lathe and gently guide the cutter into the vessel with fingertip control. One advantage is the use of a laser beam measuring devise to accurately measure wall thickness of hollow forms. This makes hollowing fun and easy, no need to work hard anymore.
