Ginger Vase

My Ginger Vase is a shape much like a Ginger Jar but with a neck and no lid.

In the demo I will turn a medium sized version. Using only a 1/2” gouge to shape and for hollowing. Turning to a thickness of about 3/32” so the wet wood can survive the drying process with out problems.

I will use many of the same fixtures and techniques as I do in hat turning. The wood jawed lit inside rechucking to finish the hollowing of the foot and also some encouraging of the distorting that will come with the drying of the wet finish turned piece.
