This piece, about 6” diameter & 3 3/4” deep (plus hight of finial) was made especially for a friend. The Bowl and Lid are from 1 blank. Cutting the Lid section from the blank was NOT an easy job, as I wanted to remove as little wood as possible so that I could keep a reasonable grain match. Has anyone ever tried cutting through a 6” round blank of Sapele with a HAND SAW!!??
I only managed, due to a lathe breakdown in the week, to finish the project about 45 mins before our friend came to collect it, hence having to take the photo’s BEFORE giving it a final buffing and removing any tiny flakes of wax. But against all odds….I MADE IT…..PHEWWW!!
