Here are the results of day 2 of turning…...brought the chainsaw home today and cut some large cherry bowl blanks, but decided a small bradford pear attempt was a better idea. This bowl is about 3 inches wide and 2 inches high. My 5 yeard old daughter has already taken it as her own for a “pop tab bowl”. I picked up a 4-jaw chuck and a wolverine sharpening system today, and discovered that sharp tools work much better than dull ones…lol. I also cut a small recess in the bottom for the chuck (pretty cool). Anyway, I’m learning a little each time, and can’t wait to tackle the next turning. I sanded this to 600 grit and finished with a light coat of wax.
