Today was a bit of a loss. First bowl broke at the spigot and sailed across the shop….. No injuries, Thanks….
The second one is shown below. This one I got off the lathe in one piece, but I’m not totally happy with it. The good is, I got the shape I was after. The wings are an equal thickness and turn upwards. Over all the form is pleasing to me at least…..... Bad is, when I turned this I guess I got it mounted a bit off centre, so one side is a bit shorter than the other 4. I also got a bit thin in the foot and the wall just below the bulge. Also a few tool marks and sanding marks that I didn’t notice at first.
All in all, I think this form has some possibility. I had planned a lid for this one, but I think I will leave that for the next try at this form….......... And there will be another try at it.
Bowl is about 6” round and 4” tall. Made of maple, one coat of tung oil, maybe buff it tomorrow.
