One of my best selling designs is the “Dresser” Bowl, a small shallow bowl that is great for putting stuff from your pockets in at the end of the day. The slight inward lip lets you scoop the change and stuff up quick and easy to put back in your pants the next day.
The challenge is to make them different each time.
I use a very light piece of Indian dontknow dunnage cut into four pieces then glued up for the blank.
I joined the Tidewater Turners last month and one of the gentlemen there mentioned that he has a pet peeve of turners who don’t finish the bottom of their turnings….so i’m getting into the habit of trying to do something in the chuck jaw recess.
With this bowl the challenge was to get the friction burn on the top edge…ended up using the wire loop for the side burn wrapped around the end of the wire loop handle…took longer but it seemed to work.
Sanded to 320 grit, 2 pound shellac, then polished on the Beall system.
