Another hunk of ebay wood, got two of them actually, in square form it was too big for my lathe! LOL I don’t have a band saw so I had to knock off the corners with my jig saw hehe
Finished with 600 grit sandpaper & paste wax, it was pretty spongy is some areas and definitely more difficult to turn than normal maple… you can see the tool marks that I got frustrated with and wasn’t able to sand out.
I actually almost quit this bowl… I originally had a tenon and had to switch to reverse chuck because I broke the tenon off trying to get a stripped out screw out of the faceplate.
Then I put an enormous gouge in the outside and nearly broke my pinky because I was being careless with my tool while looking for some sand paper.
