Here are three oak natural-edge bowls that all came from the same block of wood. The largest is about 13” across, the second is about 11” across and the third about 9”. They were cored using a One Way coring system. Not only is coring more economical, giving you more bowls per blank, but also is faster than hogging out the inside of a bowl with a bowl gouge. The bowls were rough-turned green then finished-turned about 5 months later. The bowls were sanded to 2000 grit, given 3 coats of tung oil and then buffed with the Beall system. I was only able to keep the bark on one of the bowls.
