>And I really mean little. This whole thing is about 2.5" tall. I was working on a project that involves 30 or 40 tiny little hollow forms (thats all I'm willint to say for now) and as I got near the bottom of this one I realized the voids would have broken it if I finished it off normally, so I put it on a pedestal. It is quite thin and delicate and damned near broke several times as I narrowed the neck as far as it would go before snapping. Finished with CA and sanded to 8000, then waxed. I don't really like the rise in the pedestal but there was no wood underneath of it to shape it more pleasingly. Comments welcomed and thanks for looking.
