Just a quick video showing how to make a wooden bowl from a log.
Sorry that the audio is a little quiet.

Very nice video and a really nice demonstration of simple bowl turning.

Thanks for the video, I love the lathe and just now teaching myself how to turn a bowl. I’ll put this information to good use!

My compliments to you for a very instructive video and a wonderful little bowl. I have never had much luck with friction fits but your idea of a little hot melt glue (almost cold) sounds like it might make it work for me. Keep up the good work.

Great video. Clear, concise, and you explained the things that were important. Better than a lot of “professional” video’s I have seen.I had never considered hot glue strong enough for roughing out a bowl but you proved me wrong. I see it also fills in voids if the bottom is not perfectly flat.Before I had a chuck I used regular wood glue and with heavy piece of paper between the blank and the waste block. They can later be separated using a chisel. The paper will come apart leaving just a little sanding to clean up the bottom of the turned piece. For those who don’t want to make a friction fit mount or jam chuck this can save some time. You just have to have a flat bottom to begin with.
