Is there any solution to this?

Not really … it is a natural part of the process as the wood loses moisture.

Many turners retard this distortion a bit with a radiator hose-clamp tightened around the tenon. You may have to adjust it periodically, but it might help.

Make sure you leave a center mark on the tenon so you can remount the rough-turned bowl with a jam chuck and re-true the tenon.
