This is the second bowl I ever turned. It is spalted ambrosia maple from the same log as my first bowl. I turned the outside between centers ( I don’t have a chuck ) and started on the inside. That’s when I started having problems. It’s kind of hard to cut it out with the tailstock in the way. Duh! So I took it to a fellow club members house for advice. He put it on his lathe and helped me finish it. I gave it to a friend at work who is also a mechanic there. He made me a tool rest in trade. It measures about 5 inches wide by 6 inches tall and is finished with spray lacquer.
