The blank for this bowl measured approx 11” by 8”. It was held between centres while I turned the underside of the bowl and I turned a tenon with which to hold it to turn the upper side. Sanded to 2000, 3 coats of tung oil. The almost-finished piece was then held against the flat surface of my jumbo jaws with the tail centre and the tenon reduced as much as I dared (1/4”). Off the lathe I cut off the little tenon then finished sanding the base using a sanding disk in my drill press, then applied 3 coats of oil. The whole piece was then buffed.
