Turn a Four-Sided Hollow Vessel Photos by Trent Watts INFO: DIFFICULTY - 3/5, LENGTH/TIME - 3/5, COST - 2/5 Have you ever wondered how to make a four-sided hollow turning? After making many hollow turnings of various sizes and shapes I wanted to add the effect of making one with four distinct, yet uneven, sides.
The process is simple enough in theory, and the steps involved didn't prove too difficult.Start with a regular hollow turning, remove a section from the center, glue it back together, rotate the piece 90 degrees and repeat the cutting and gluing process.
Turn the basic shapeI had an idea of the final shape I wanted, so started with a square piece of Weeping Birch that was 4 ¾ " square by 9" long.A block this size gave me ample room for the design of the final piece with enough waste to facilitate safe use of the bandsaw afterwards.
The two waste areas in the center of the piece, at 90 degrees to each other, are marked on the end grain of the blank.When laying out the two waste areas I wanted to remove unequal amounts of material to create a pleasing dynamic in the final piece.
