Turning a Torus Vase

In geometry, a torus is a surface of revolution generated by revolving a circle in three dimensional space about an axis co-planar with the circle, which does not touch the circle.  But I’m not that good at geometry, so in simple terms, a torus is a doughnut or inner tube shape.
 

This is a fun project.  This project covers how to turn a torus-shaped vase/weed pot with glass tube insert.  The vase is turned on multiple axis and uses multiple chucking techniques.  The project can be scaled to work on almost any sized lathe.  I’ll cover all the steps including all of the different ways the piece is held on the lathe, useful gigs, turning air, production techniques, and optional designs.  It there is time I’ll also cover how I do stone inlay work.
