The scrap bin in the shop yielded a piece of 7/8” black walnut about 7 1/2” square that was just crying to be turned into something useful.
I trimmed off the corners, glued a sacrificial blank to one face, screwed a face plate to the blank, and mounted it on one of the shop lathes.
Using a 1/8” parting tool, I started a 45 degree cut about 2 1/2” from the center, cutting all of the way through the piece. I glued the back of the ring that resulted from the 45 degree cut to the face, and finished turning this little bowl.
It is about 1 5/8” deep, and 7 3/8 ” wide.
WARNING: Turning is addictive. Engaging in this activity can result in purchase of lathe, turning tools, and lathe accessories that will make your house payment look like pocket change!
