This is my 41st bowl and I don’t know what kind of wood it is. It is 6” x 2 1/2” with a 1/8” wall and finished with clear matte spray.
It had cracked when I started on the inside so I had to take it off and epoxy it and re-turn the outside and the inside.
This is one of the 4 pieces I soaked in the Minwax pre-stain conditioner to make it turn cleaner. It did help clean up the end grain but when I went to sand it, the conditioner must still be in it because it gummed up the sand paper all the while.

The two business card holders are made from Corian. I used posts to make them full view card holders. I glued the 1/2” Corian together to make the posts which are sitting back at a 15 degree angle. The larger 1 1/8”post required a little more material so I used a contrasting color. The posts were turned to size on the metal lathe and the slots were cut in the mill.
They are finished with clear matte spray…....................Jim

There isn’t anything that I can add to the above remarks Jim other than to ask that next time you make a card holder, you take a few shots of the milling because I’m very much a self taught amateur on the mill and would love to see how you go about it, pretty please!

Neat bowl. Did you notice the horseshoe on the bowl in the third picture? Perhaps 41 is your lucky number. Nice job!

Super fine, super thin bowl there Jim. Really nicely turned. I like the card holders. Is the Corian easy to work with?

Great work with the corian Jim, nice to see you using alternative material should be good sellers.

Nice bowl and sounds like a good save.
