This is five boards glued up. I glued a couple small boards on so I could attach it to my lathe but the screws I used were too long and I brain farted and now there are holes in the bowl.
It’s for an old friend who want’s to give it to her sister, also an old friend. So I hope she likes it. I’m only charging her for the wood that I have in it. I need some practice on these bowls. This one broke off the glue mounting midway through the hollowing process and I had to reglue it which means re-turning it. It took most of the day, and three days prior just in gluing up.
In other words, a lot of work goes into one of these.
