Very good video, Reed. Thanks for posting it.

Couple questions.... What camera are you using?
Does your microphone have a cord that goes to your camera or does it have a wireless transmitter?............ Jerry (in Tucson)

I don't know what the camera is, as I used a camera man. His camera is digital, and he does it professionally. We found that the clip on mike doesn't work well if you turn your head. The camera mike seems to work very well, and some times the one you hook onto your ear or head with the wrap around thing so it always stays in front of your mouth. I guess I could get a camera and try to film and edit it all myself, but would rather spend time in the shop.

You would have to have video/photography as a hobby to enjoy doing your own. I enjoy it but editing 20+ clips can get tough. Your vids with the pro camera come out so much better as the camera has a larger sensor than my GoPro.

Yes, for me it is like working on cars, that is a job for a mechanic.... It took a while, but my camera man is pretty well trained now.

Reed, when you make your initial recess with the drill press, do you do anything to get a dovetail or do you feel that it wil, l hold well enough to rough out a non-round blank?

Good video. Thanks for posting it.  Very informative.

For a natural edged piece, this generally doesn't work as well because you drill into the bark side, and by the time you get deep enough to be into solid wood, then you bottom out on the chuck before you can get down to solid wood. Extended jaws will work better for that one. On standard bowls, if the piece is not well balanced, and/or some one did a poor saw job, I make sure the tailstock is engaged, and start at slower speeds, which is exactly what I do with most pieces. I generally don't use the tailstock on bowls less than 12 inches, and never on ones in the 10 inch range. Having a big lathe helps....

Thanks for the reply.  I've been using a screw chuck in my four jaw chuck to hold my blanks as I turn the bottoms.  Hadn't thought about using a Forstner bit to create a recess for the chuck jaws as a starting point.  I'll have to give it a try.

I understand about the tail stock and the the size of the bowl.  We have a same lathe Thumbs Up

I don't think the idea of using a forstner bit to drill a recess for mounting is original, but I can't remember who did it first. Efficiency is intelligent laziness......
