Robert Sorby Hollowing Tools

Robert Sorby makes a full line of hollowing tools designed to make the task of turning hollow vessels easier. With the proper Robert Sorby hollowing tool, you can create thin walled hollow wooden vessels of the most elegant forms.

Robert Sorby Sovereign Ultima Hollowing System
The Sovereign Ultima Hollowing System is the latest product from the Robert Sorby factory in Sheffield.

It forms part of the Sovereign System but is also a stand-alone tool in its own right. Available in two sizes it enables woodturners to produce hollow forms up to 11" (275mm) with the small version and up to 16" (400mm) with the medium in both wet and dry woods. It has a cutter system that slices through the wood rather than scraping and the clever design allows the shavings to clear without clogging. It is equally effective on bowl grain work as well as end-grain projects. The cutter is able to make light or heavy cuts and the unique micro adjust feature enables the turner to set the cutter depth with ease.
