I’ve not yet added a lathe to my shop so I have to make due with what I have and in some cases the lathe is the wrong tool to have, such as in this one. I made this bowel using a #24 grit Carbide Cup grinding Wheel purchased from Harbor freight. Though I am picky at what I purchase from HF this little instrument is worth the purchase and a dandy to have in your workshop, The wheel is very aggressive and creates a ton of sawdust.
The bowl measures 12” x 3 1/4” x 9” at it’s widest point. I normally finish my projects with a wipe on satin poly but in this case I went with a pure clear gloss poly. First coat is a rub of tung oil then the poly and lastly paste wax.
