A friend gave me a piece of engineered lumber … I decided ‘what the heck’ and mounted it on the lathe.

Turned down to a bowl 4 3/4” in diameter and 2 1/4” high.

Can’t imagine the pressure they have to apply to create this stuff! You wouldn’t use this as a soup bowl … it is full of pin-hole and larger voids. Turns pretty nice, though.

Some pretty wild structure to this. Great to see someone go above the normal and try it. Nice work.

Randy—I thought it might hard to turn, but it actually was pretty easy. Did the whole thing with a sharp 5/8” bowl gouge.

Ken—Should have thought of that!

Very nice. Great for candy (the low-calorie kind would be preferable).

No doubting your ability but for me there’s just something freakishly unnatural about it.
It’s weird looking, man. No disrespect intended.

Nice bowl. if you wanted it to hold liquid, you could soak it in resin and re-turn it to clean up the resin surface. A friend of mine uses this technique to turn pine cones to make pens.

thanks,
Don
