Ron,
I just tried that on a bowl & I guess it was thinner then I thought I went right through the bottom. Cry

Doug,
I figured that out Grin instead of having just a plain foot I wanted to dress the inside up a bit.  That's ok I fixed it I used a forstner bit & turned a dowel then glued it in.

Can't hold wrapped candy in a funnel. Grin it has a tendency of falling out.

I use a Crown 3 point tool to make the groove and bead on most of my bowl bases.  It more or less does the same thing without having to change tools.

Just place the bottom inside your mouth, and have someone pour the candy in  Grin

I use to make beads on the bottom of my bowls like this...  But I used the diamond point scraper instead of a parting tool.  Nowadays I only use a small detail gouge ground to a long point with the wings ground over.  It gives me a smoother cut.

I'll try to get an image posted.  Just be prepared.  It ain't pretty (I ain't related to Sorby  Grin) and I made it from an old star chisel I had laying round.  I figured if it was hard enough to use on concrete it's be hard enough to make a wood turning tool.

I've ground old chisels in the shapes of different bead profiles.  It comes in handy when you want to repeat the same profile on a pair of objects... like say...  a set of candle holders.  Because they are scrapers  they tend to leave torn grain in some woods.  In hard dense woods they work quite well.

OK, here's one image.  I included another image (a side view) in an edit of my last post (above) cuz I couldn't get the system to accept two images in one entry.  Anyhow, I used an old discarded star chisel, my heavy duty grinder, belt sander and Dremel tool.  The Dremel tool wasn't really necessary because the profile can be established on the edge of a grinding wheel but the Dremel tool kind of dresses it up better.  I ground the surfaces flat, slightly rounded the front corners of the long axis, rounded the tip from underneath to meet the flat top side, ground a beveled edge at about 45 degrees (who measures?) from the rounded bottom side to meet the flat top side (that produced the "V" for the bead) and polished the thing up a bit.
