Here are two ‘Emerging Bowls’ ... the one on the left in the first photo is Cherry, while the one on the right started out simply as a glue block made from construction grade lumber.

This is the first time I have turned and finished a glue block, but, hey … it was there, and it didn’t look too bad, so I had my way with it!

This project is based on an article by Irwin Seidman that appeared in Woodturner’s Resource several years ago ( ). My twist on Seidman’s project is the raised rim,

These bowls are 3 1/2” in diameter and 1 3/4” inches high. The finish is Danish Oil, buffed and polished with the Beall system.

Thank you!

I always wondered how this type of bowl is turned. You turned a fine bowl and thanks for the link with instructions.

For the last time, you CAN NOT make bowls like that. Now cut it out and get back to work!
