Made a simple rosewood bowl for my wife. It is about 7” diameter finished and the finish is OB Shine Juice.

waho6o9,

Thank you. It was hard to see what the wood actually looked like under the sealant that was on it.

Again, thank you.

QuietFly,

Thank you. I am still learning how this all works. I would like to try and make one with thinner walls, but I was too scared to blow this one apart.

Thank You!

Well done David, looks like a nice bit of undercut work on the rim. Nice timber
cheers

Hey David, almost double the size of your last one. That lathe is coming in handy. I like that style of bowl, I’ve got one on the go similar to it, but it is still wet and changing shape so it will be awhile before I can finish it. Looks like your piece of wood was kiln dried, nice grain and colour. I’m sure you’ll have no trouble cutting thinner walls next time.

Pete,

I did do a small undercut on the rim. initially it was to see if I could do it, and then I ended up liking it, so it stayed.

Thank you!

John,

Thank you for the kind words. It is actually about 2-3 times the size of my first one. Unfortunately, I don’t think I can get any bigger without a bigger lathe. That though is probably a good thing, since I am still learning.

TheWeiss,

The before picture was because I happen to have it, but I think it came out well. Almost tells a story.

Thank you!

Excellent grain on this one and the shape is really nice. You could knock off the corners on those square bowl blanks so bigger one could fit on your lathe. I’m not really afraid of bowls exploding, but I am terrified of explaining to the wife why there are shards of maple in my face.

-- I love my lathe. It’s old, not too pretty and I don’t really know how to use it… Love it!
