A few months ago I was lurking on another forum where there was talk of turning OSB on a lathe. The general consensus was that it could not be done without stabilization. Well I did it without a stabilizer.
I will not be doing another though. I am not a fan of the look or turning while wearing a respirator.
The 12” plywood bowl was not that difficult to turn. And definitely not nearly as dusty. It was made from a single 12” piece of 3/4” ply using the bowl from a board method. Finished with one coat of water based black analine dye dissolved in alcohol instead of water. Then a few coats of poly.
Pics 5 & 6 are of 14” silver maple and sassafras bowl.
Thanks for looking.
