We were asked to submit an off center project for the February guild meeting back in Michigan. So I made this 4 center bowl and will send it to a buddy to take to the meeting. It is made from 3 pieces of myrtle wood with turquoise inlay. The top grooves were cut on the lathe during boring and the side and bottom grooves were free handed with a Dremel. It is finished with danish Oil and I’m debatng on giving it a coat of lacquer. It is 7” x 1 7/8” high.

Below are some process shots. It almost jumped the lathe off the floor the first time I turned it on mounted in one of the off center holes without the counterweight.

Cheers, Jim

Counter weight, I get it! Wonder what that extra piece was!

Great looking bowl and process!
