The glued up blank and bottom sat in the clamp overnight and we are ready to turn.
I used my carbide R2 cutter to rough out the inside of the bowl. I switched to a bowl gouge to clean up the inside and sanded it with my self-powered sander.
I used the carbide to rough the outside of the bowl, a bowl gouge to get it to final dimension, and sanded it while it was still mounted on the scroll chuck.
Next, out came the Longworth Chuck to shape and finish the bottom of the bowl.
I cut a couple of accent lines with the tip of a skew and ‘signed’ the piece …
... then out came the Mahoney’s walnut oil.
After it dries for a day or two, I’ll buff it with the Beall Buff System and it will be ready for use!
