I’ve been enjoying the lazy, hazy days of summer lately. Just taking it easy and enjoying the good weather. I took a couple of day trips to local parks, visited some friends and also got in a quick trip to Maine where I visited several places of interest to woodworkers.

However, I did get a chance to get back into the shop the other day and grabbed a hunk of Walnut and turned this small bowl. It’s about 6” X 2” and finished with EEE Cream and Shellawax.

I am happy with th way it turned out but next time I’ll try to get the sides a bit thinner.

Second photo shows a side view and third photo shots a view of the bottom.

Thanks for lookin’!

Nice looking side profile. How do you reverse chuck to turn the bottom? Thanks for sharing.

you ceritnaly seem to have a handle on the tools and finish.

I am not at all fond of the form. (please don’t hate me)

Yoiu should practice looking at the raw block and looking for the possibilities.

This is too “military” for my tastes.

Technicailly good job , don’t be discouraged.

Great looking piece of Walnut there Ted… What woodworking places did you visit in Maine? Lie-Nielsen by chance?

Roper, thanks for the comment!

Trifern, thanks! I use the Oneway Jumbo Jaws to turn the bottoms. With my limited use I found it to work well.

Bob, hate you? No way, man! I appreciate your opinion! I really do. Thanks.

Chris, thanks! Yes, visited Lie Neilsen and others. You can read about it here.
