Hollow Vessel

Steve Roxberg
>I finished a hollow vessel last night that has a 1 1/2 inch wide opening and is six inches deep.

All previous attempts at a hollow form with a small opening (1 1/2 for me right now) have turned into open vases after I blew out the opening so sanding and finishing the inside weren't a problem.

How do I sand the interior? The walls are about 1/8 " think and pretty darn consistent.

How do I finish, or do I finish the inside.

It's Maple so I will be using tung oil followed by poly for the exterior.

Any tips would be appreciated.
