Double 3 Sided Bowl

This bowl stands about 4-5” tall and has two, three sided bowls made of one piece of wood. Turning a lot of air and I managed to NOT bust my hand on this one like I did on my last winged bowl. This one would have done some real damage as the tips are sharper and a greater angle since there are only three. It’s made of ash and has no finish yet. I may stain it, I may leave it. Not really sure. Maybe I’ll send it out to you guys for a vote? Thank you for looking.

I bet it sounded like a helicopter when you turned it. Nice work!

Just a thought, if you like the look of the wood as it is, try this.

Mohawk dead flat pre-catalyzed lacquer. It will protect the wood, but you won’t know it’s there.

Nice looking work. So why not turn it ‘whole’ and then cut the scallops after it comes off the lathe? Less scary, but uses more wood. Makes it easier to hold in the lathe for the 2nd end too. So how did you hold that in the lathe?

Thanks for the compliments. I really appreciate them.

Dean2336- Go for it buddy!! Got to be a first time sometime!!

Harry- I wouldn’t say that it sounded like a helicopter, but it definitely kept the shavings away! Nice little breeze it gave me while turning in 80 degree weather!

Rance- I wanted this to be one piece of wood mainly because it’s cool, but also because I don’t have enough woodworking talent to pull that kind of cutting off. I’m really just a turner and I like that. I held it in place by turning a tenon that was under the bottom of the bowl. I then turned a quick jam chuck, spun it around, held it in place with my tailstock as long as I could then filed and sanded it down.

Very cool. I just finished my first winged (square) bowl last week. A bit nerve wracking. I was very conscious of remembering to keep all body parts BEHIND the tool rest!

Good work!

doordude- there is definitely potential for some knuckle bustin’, but i was fortunate this time.

Dennis- isn’t everything fun to make? :-) In all honesty though, it was an absolute blast. Sanding between the two wasn’t very fun. I need to learn some tricks on that!

As always, thanks for looking!!
