First cherry natural edge bowl. I like the way they look, as it turns out. This is also the first natural edge piece where I felt like I nailed some good form on both the interior and exterior.

Nice bowl. How do you complete it without the foot for the chuck?

It had one, I just pinned it between my bowl buff and the tailstock to turn it all off but a lil’ nib which I then sanded flush.

Love the roundness that you achieved over the majority of the piece. I would say you nailed it. Great preservation of the bark around the edges. I have only done a couple natural edge pieces and I know that isn’t easy to do.

I apply thin CA glue to the bark on my bowls to help hold it in place. I apply it drop by drop and wait till it soaks in before going to the next section. I don’t use the accelerator on this part cause it often makes the CA glue turn white and unsightly. You did a very nice job on this bowl.

Your bowl is wonderful, the all aspects of the wood show off nicely.

great looking bowl. having not turned a natural edge I would have loved to see a picture of what it looked like when you first put it on the lathe.
