It is made from kiln-dried European oak saved offcut from a front door frame I was working on. The blank started 255mm x 95mm @ 600mm. I cut a piece 350mm long for the body of this piece of which the foot, body, and neck are all 1 piece turned from a solid block in multiple positions.
The main tools used for this piece were 1/2″ Henry Taylor bowl gouge and Crown Tool’s midi evolution hollowing tool, accompanied by a Robert Sorby 3/8 spindle gouge and thin parting tools.
I turned this in the summer of 2019, the body has a wall thickness of about 5mm all round inside. The outside I finished with a good quality Danish oil with the interior left bare.
This is a rather extravagant liqueur storage container, with approximately 2L capacity.
It was a fun but also very challenging project due to the shape being completely turned.
