Turned and chip carved bowl
I turned this bowl from green basswood. Seeing as it was for a customer who was waiting I started the final turning a bit too soon and had a bit of tear out on the inside. You’d think I’d know better than to rush! That’s why I didn’t show you any photos of the inside :-)
I drew all the pattern lines while the bowl was still on my lathe. It didn’t matter if the lines weren’t perfectly straight and all the rectangles equal size. The differences actually gave it a nice look and a bit of a twist. All of the chips were removed with the MyChipCarving Platinum Cutting Knife shown.
After the carving was done I applied a coat of Sanding Sealer and three spray coats of satin lacquer.
My bid was way too low but I enjoyed this carving so that makes it all worthwhile.
It is for my customer’s parents so I trust they will treasure it.
Thanks for looking!
