I’ve always wanted to turn bowls, I just think they’re so cool. Over the years, I’ve tried and been a miserable failure. I just couldn’t master the inside, constantly getting huge catches, taking out chunks or having the tool cut a nice spiral trough.
Then I got a chance to try out the Easy Wood Tools. I was so impressed after a few minutes that I plunked down $450 for three of them.
So, after a few more minutes of practicing, I decided to tackle my old nemesis. I had an old bowl blank that I had given up on last year. I put it in a chuck and started going to town. I was having such success that I caught the rest on video.
If you want to see a bowl butcher turn into a bowl turner before your very eyes, check it out!
Oh, and before you say “it’s just a scraper”, no, it’s not. I’ve tried scrapers before, this is something a little different. I can’t say why, exactly, but it is.
