« Part 2: We setup our new Carter Hollow Roller System! Part 3 of Bowl Making! - Showing off some of our new toys in action!! series Part 4: 73 Manzanita Burls! - Fresh from CA »

Fruits of the new Carter Hollow Roller System – manzanita burl bowls #6, 7, 8, & 9 were all hollowed out using the standard HSS cutter. It made surprisingly fast work of the job. Two are sanded smooth inside two I left with the cutter marks as texture. (Yes I know – I got lazy excuse is it looks cool!) ...

I only sharpened the cutter once so far, it’s done quite a nice job tearing into this tough hard wood. Today I ordered 166lbs of manzanita burls – so yeah we have some work ahead of that little cutter.

I also ordered a bent bar and two round cutters. I also have the carbide cutter I need to try as well. Having fun with the new toys!
