Turning the first bowl
Aug 11th, 2017 at 12:17pm
 
I have been turning a number of Peppermills and Salt shakers but decided to try my first bowl. My tools are limited to some spindle gouges and scrapers but I watched a video by Dennis Daudelin and gave it a try with lots of help from reading this forum. The wood is all Cherry with some lighter Birch pieces. I'm sure you wood turners can see that I glued the top layer on after I hollowed the inside. The inside is just straight, not following the outside shape. Maybe i'll try that on the next one.

Well done, how does turning the bowl compare with turning grinders?
Next you could consider turning a green wood bowl, those are really fun, I like to turn them to finished thickness in one go and then let them warp, always unique.
Have fun and stay safe.

More Prep on the bowl. Attached it to a faceplate with screws and don't have a way yet to chuck it up and face off the bottom. Peppergrinders I do in the Nova chuck and waste an inch for the chuck.

Great start.  With each new project push yourself a little more. 
Most of my fun in turning is trying to figure out how not to make that same mistake again.

Sound like you are hooked to me.

Thanks much Len.Should have took more interest back in 1992 when my wife bought me the lathe, but I had too many other projects going. Gave the lathe to my Son-in-law, he never used it and brought it back this spring. Its like a brand new rusty lathe. Really enjoying it now.
