I thought I’d post these pictures after the thread where I commented about using dowels across cracks instead of following them. I also gave an example of not using metal dowel rod because of the chance of getting a catch and ripping your piece apart, plus having a sharp piece of metal flying off the lathe.
Below are a few pictures of a Mulberry bowl that did survive the turning experience. It has only two copper dowels, and seven wood dowels…..Form is 5” tall, and 6” od…...... CA finish…....... Thanks for looking.
BTW, sorry about exposing my ugly fingers. It’s impossible to take pictures holding something without them being seen.
Also, the pictures are screen grabs from video, so they aren’t the best. .......... Jerry (in Tucson)
