This is a cherry bowl with a turned walnut lid and maple knob. The knob is attached with a through tenon and glued. Finish is 1/3 shellac, 1/3 denatured alcohol and 1/3 boiled linseed oil. Nothing fancy but was fun to learn the process. I used a nova g3 chuck and easy wood tools to make it. I ended up turing the lid with with a screw holding it to a sacrificial board on a faceplate. If any of you have any suggestions on a better way to hold the lid, I would greatly apprciate learning from your experience.

I assigned a bowl turning assignment for my students and wanted to have a few examples for them to attempt. I found inspiration f om Matt Kenney’s 52 box blog on his site and from his Fine woodworking article.

Nice job, might be tough for a first time student/turner.
