My neighbor works for Weyerhaeuser and this piece was going in the scrap before he saved it.

If you didn’t have a heavy lathe I bet you chased that all over before you got it round:) nice job and thanks for showing.

Deglazed, the butt was very cracked, si not much to save.
WoodKiller, we have two lathes, a big one and a mini but it did make the lathe walk a bit until I got it rounded.
Bowls arent easy but well worth it when you get them finished.

Have your say...
