Topic tags/keywords: waste block glue question trick tip lathe turning bowl

I have turned the outside of my first bowl. Its pretty small. I think I am going to glue on a waste block to turn the inside. I have read a liittle bit on here about sandwiching a brown paper bag between the waste block and the bowl. I have also read about using sheetrock in the same manner. What do ya’ll think, and what kind of glue would be best?

I turned a lot in high school and I always just used a piece of plain white paper. When your done, if you bottom isn’t to thin, just use a sharp chisel and work around the bottom gently and it will finally come right off and then just sand the paper residue off.

Good Luck,
