Bowl turning is new to me. It’s a lot like pen making, but because the original block is so large and still heavy from retaining moisture from the original tree… it presents its own set of challenges. That said, this bowl isn’t “show quality” by any means. Defects are displayed in photos. Here’s what you need to know.
- There are gaps between the stone and voids, as the wood shrunk a bit after turning. The inside gap is large.
- The foot has a surrounding pattern of triangular marks from the chuck. It looks neat, but is not uniform.
