endgrain vase

>I sarted my endgrain vase the other day and now I've got another question or two.

I got a pretty good exterior shape. Today I drilled in from the "mouth" of the vase. I began to turn away the inside. At first it went beautifully but I guess the hole I drilled was too small in diameter, By the time I got down to about four inches in, I was having a pretty hard time making any progress.

The vase is to be slightly hollow and I just couldn't get a tool rest down into the vase to support the gouge and I couldn't get it to "bite" right there in the center. I've still got about an inch to an inch and a half to bottom out.

Am I doing something wrong or was it just the quarter inch drill bit?

Any advice will be appreciated....
