Square mahogany bowl. This will be a gift.

Before and after flea market screwdriver. Now it’s a tenon tool for the lathe. There are different opinions about using screwdrivers for turning tools, google it, get the info and decide for yourself.

I like it when someone thinks outside of the box. Why do people tend to think that a bowl has to be round on the outside. Good job and keep up the good work.

That looks really good, are there any particular problems turning a square blank? and what size is it?

Thanks!

It’s about 8×8 x 2.5 inches.

It’s a little scary, when it starts whirring. Glue a block on the bottom, hold the block in a chuck, cut and sand off the block after turning. A belt sander helps to clean it all up.

Nice turning. these are some of my favorites because of the way you can follow the grain over the edge of the bowl and around the inside.

The grain reminds me of the way water flushes in australia, must be Raffan influence. Kidding, the grain looks really cool the way it swirls down to the cirle.
Thanks for sharing.
