Last week I purchased two 6X6X4 inch walnut and cherry laminated bowl blanks. I purchased them from www.gvwp.net and am very pleased with them both. It cost me about $30 for two blanks and the shipping was free. As you can see I made a bowl of one of them.
This is the third bowl that I have made. I only have a turncrafter pro midi lathe, but it worked well. I have been thinking for some time about buying a full size lathe as I keep wanting to make things that are bigger then can fit on this lathe. As I have done more and more on the lathe I bought a set of Easy Wood tools. I am very happy with them but I will go into that in product view.
I really like the way the bowl turned out and am looking forward to making more.
Just an additional comment (12/07/2077)
I was looking at the picture and saw something on the upper left side and the lower right of the bowl in the first picture. At first I had a panic attack. I thought oh crap there are flaws in the bowl and I just posted this messed up crap on lumberjocks. I immediately ran and got the bowl to see what I missed before and was feeling sick to my stomach for posting something with such flaws. Well, it turns out that what may initially look like flaws in the bowl are actually reflections. The upper left side is the reflection off the closed blinds of a window and the lower right is a reflection off the table and background cloth. I was sooooo relieved. Anyway, just thought I would share that.
