Large free form, footed bowl I carved a few years ago, curly koa…basically a half log. I’ve improved since then and my photos are not great but you will get the idea.

I used an Arbortech Industrial Pro on a angle grinder….bought 2 Industrial Pros when they were 99 bucks, now I think they are 150…I’m gonna gift myself the new Arbortech planer disk which unbelievably cost 155 but it will save so much time on bowl bottoms.

Dave, I’ve been looking at that arbortech for about a year now.
This just may push me over the edge.
