Hi all. Just playing around on the lathe and decided to try something different. Making a square bowl is not that difficult but you do have to be careful with the corners. You can’t see the corners when spinning so it mostly done by feel. Kind of fun and a nice break from segmented work, and much faster. Col Don

Very nicely done. That looks like lignum vitae. Is it? It’s one of my favorite woods to turn. I love the aroma when I am turning it.

Fantastic! Love the square edges designs on bowls. Have turned a couple of candles with the square edges. I agree, it gets dangerous for the knuckles, but a LOT of fun.

Keep up the great work.

Very Nicely done, excellent results!! Not really being able to see the corners I think makes it more interesting as long as you done feel it with your knuckles. Mark

That looks very sweet, and very scary to turn! Nicely done. I admire your skill.
