Jerry aka Nubsnstubs was doing a demo at our local Woodcraft a few months ago.He was kind enough to give me this chunk of palo verde and this is how it turned out.

Measures 2 1/4” depth x 6 3/4” width.It was pretty buggy as you can see.Finish is a wiped on boiled linseed oil.Jerry thx.again…

Why shucks, Jeff, that’s a mighty fine looking bowl. It really is. I was wondering what happened to that piece of wood. You did a great job on it. How did you finish the bottom? I know for certain you couldn’t use a vacuum and you don’t have my Tail Stock Steady, so how’d you do it? ............. Jerry (in Tucson)

Thx.Ron…Jerry,I used a worm screw mounted in my chuck to turn the outside shape,I then turned a recess tenon for the bottom and reversed it in my chuck to turn the inside.I tried to make my final cuts as smooth as possible because I had a feeling trying to sand the surface with all those holes would grab the sand paper and I was right.Took a little extra time to finish it up.I had to use compressed air to remove the dust out of the holes.I hadn’t turned Palo Verde before so thx.again.
