This weekend I went to my neighbors to see his woodshop. Man is it cool! He has a big General wood lathe.
He tought me Sunday how to use a bowl gouge. It was the first time i had ever used a bowl gouge. Man is it easy. I always thought they were hard to use, but now its easy. he also showed my the nearest sheering cut. If you put your deep V bowl gouge almost verticle and lay the bevel down on the wood, and just turn the handle it will make the cleanest of cuts! I turned this whole bowl on the lathe, It started out a lot bigger than it finished up at, but that was because of some punk or booger wood one the oneside. It is solid cherry, and it had some worms in it as well which gave it the coloring on the bottom. Man we said to hog off some wood, I did! I was taking a little less than a 1/2 an inch off in one pass. That was awesome!!!!!!!!!! (It was green so thats why we could do that) I was shooting shavings about 15 feet behind me! This was extremely fun!
This is number 2 out of 4 postings, at my neighbors.
