Subject:
Hollow Form Design Question

Steve Roxberg
>I have a maple burl blank turned to a 4" cylinder with about 8" of working length. I intend to make a hollow form along the lines of what Art Leistman does, if you have seen them.

I intend for the opening to be 1 1/4. I used a french curve and have on paper what looks good, but the base in this design is only 1". with a full 4" cylinder at about roughly 5 inches.

Will this be too top heavy?
