My friend Ron was going to his woodturning meeting when he met an “old-timer” turner. “What the #%*$ is that in your hand?” “It’s a BowlSaw. Let me show it to you.” “Get away from me with that thing. I’m afraid it will bite me!” And that’s the response I get to my new hand-held coring unit for 6” to 8” bowl blanks. Even the former president of my club, after seeing me demo the unit and make 3 sets of bowls in 40 minutes, said: “I wouldn’t touch that thing with a ten-foot pole!” And last week at our Christmas meeting, he insisted to me: “I’m still scared to death of it.” (and he grabbed his throat in mock fear). I’ve had this response to a unit that is so new that all the woodturners are afraid of it. They won’t even give it a try! But those who are brave enough to evaluate one that I send them all have had positive responses. For those considering a coring unit, I invite them to check the BowlSaw out at bowlsaw.com.
