This is my 5th bowl that I finished. Its 15” in diameter made of maple and walnut and, finished with wipe on poly. I had an accident with this bowl. I tried a paper joint to my waste block. That joint failed and sent my bowl flying. But I was lucky and could salvage the bowl. I used an clothes iron to steam out a big dent. I’m finally starting to get the push and pull cuts. But still had a lot of sanding.

I really the symmetry of the pattern. Very nice glue job to get everything to align.

awesome turning and great glue-up. is this considered “food safe” with the wipe on poly? I don’t do much lathe work so I’m just curious.

that is a fantastic bowl
great design
i love it
great save
at 15 inch a pepper joint is not strong enough
i lost a few pieces using paper joints
gluing striate to the scrape piece is better
the turn the scrape piece off
just my thought s

- Tooch

The wipe on poly was not badged food safe. But Ive used a salad bowl finish before and it appears to be a form of polyurethane. Im not sure what the differences.

I intended the bowl to be more of a center piece. I hate dishes that aren’t dishwasher safe.
