A small 6 inch diameter x 2-1/2 inch high bowl that I turned from a blank of African Padauk. I initially mounted the blank on a face plate ring to turn the outside shape and cut a mortise for remounting. Flipped it around on my four jaw chuck for hollowing out the bowl. Used a newly acquired Sorby texturing tool to embellish the bottom and also to do an edge treatment on the outside of the rim. Cut a couple of accent V’s and burned them with a wire. After power sanding to 600 grit, I finished with a coat of dewaxed shellac sanding sealer and then three coats of Myland’s friction polish. Did a final buffing with Carnauba wax. Sent to Redding, CA for gift to my brother.

Beautifully done bowl, really like the base treatment, most often we do not do much there. 5 stars for sure.

Absolutely beautifully done. I like Padauk wood color. I recently purchase a board of Padauk for accent pieces and it was rather pricey.

Great bowl. I like the accent work. I have never tried it.

A suggestion for mounting.
Instead of using a face plate I make the first mounting mortise using a plywood template (1/2 or 3/4 plywood about 18” by 6”) with the proper size round hole cut in the center with a circle cutter. I clamp this with the hole centered over the blank (usually with clamps on each end across a corner of my work bench); then with a template guide on my router and an 8 degree dovetail bit I create a mortise. I usually make the mortice in what will be the inside of a bowl and like you finish the bottom before turning it to finish the inside. On rough blanks I sometimes have to flip the piece back and forth a couple of times to get it trued up. Much easier than face plate mounting. I usually do this to prepare several blanks at a time.
