This is a current picture (2016) of a pine bowl, and was the first turning project that i ever did (7th grade, 1973). Still standing the test of time, 43 years later.

It was face plate turned on a delta lathe, with 2 coats of Deft spray and a coat of Johnson’s paste wax.

The blank glue-up was 4 layers of pine, with a layer of Heavy brown Construction paper between the 1st and second layer. Titebond was the glue. a very small parting line was created on top of the paper, then separated by hand with a chisel and mallet after the bowl was finished. This leaves a felt like bottom on the bowl.

This Little trick was taught to me by the best shop teacher i ever had, Mr. Ed. Creech, who had won several State (Oklahoma) awards for his turnings and wood projects at the time. He was truly the inspiration behind my love of the craft.

I had one similar project but it didn’t survive the test of time and finally fell apart but a stool I made is still with me some 50 years later.
Nice project.
