i was commissioned to make 8 big bowl for some organization that deals with agriculture and forests, they had a group visiting from UK and wanted to make them a gift, inside this bowl they would put ground pepper seeds as that is one of the crops that they are helping produce.

initally they were supposed to be 8 in diameter an 4 inches high. But i messed up when i was cutting the blanks, i tried to cut the angle in the band saw but i miss the first one by one inch, then i tried cut them in the table saw and did the same, i was trying to save a little bit of turning.
anyway, some are smaller than others, luckily the client say it was ok and that they were very nice.

i finished them with a mixture of mineral oil and bees wax.

here is me sanding one of them.

Beautiful bowls, Nayo! What kind of wood is it? The finish really brought out the grain! A machine could have made them the same. You made them special.

Beautiful Nayo. The lathe you are using is very interesting. By reading your bio it looks like it is home made.

That’s a nice light brown colour. I like the shape too.

Yes, it is homemade.
was done by 2 uncles of mine that run a milling-welding-machining shop. they are quite inventive.
the jaw is one from a metal lathe that they welded a ring (a querter of it) of metal so i could grab the bowls.
the thing is quite big, i have made 16 inches bowl in that one, i have to make a wooden pulley because it was too fast, and it only have one speed.
sorry about the mess. i should have cleaned it a bit!
