(Irwin Seidman May 2006)

1. Glue up with 2 waste blocks.Turn outside of bowl first. img1
2. Split apart. (I use a paper glue joint to make splitting easier) img1
3. Basic shape is now done img3
4. Flip the blank and remount itagain using a waste block. Ialso inserted a wedge (using double sided tape) to help balance (weight) and stabilize this now very off balance piece. img4
5. Hollow out the inner bowl img5
6. Split apart pieces and hand (orpower) sand bottom and side where glue joints existed.
7. Voila ... Done img7
