      Egg

      Egg Cup

      Rough out as before and square off end. Hollow out cavity to 'push fit' the blunt end of the egg. Jam fit the egg and finish. After removing finished egg, complete hollowing and shape the cup. Sand and finish

      Make a jam chuck, and reverse fit the egg cup on to it to allow you to finish off the base.
