Nobody ever accused me of doing anything quickly. This bowl was started 2 years ago and set aside after a nasty catch (see picture #5). Hubby found it and chucked it up on his new Harbor Freight mini lathe and said finish it up (picture #6). It went airborn once. We don’t have a long worth or a vacuum chuck, so when the shaping was done, I cut the bowl from the chuck with a back saw and smoothed the bottom flush at the belt sander. Finish is several coats of Rustoleum rattle can lacquer. 5 5/8” diameter by 2” tall by 1 1/4” deep. The wood was collected from gfadvm’s firewood pile(with his permission) as we were on our way to Louisiana to meet a bunch of Lumberjocks in 2014. Thanks, Andy! Thank you all for reading this and tips, comments, critiques are welcome. Please share your thoughts, I’ve much to learn.
