I do not think I was brave enough to take a picture of my first bowl. Neat idea about the epoxy

I have to agree with Lew and Gerald, my first efforts weren't anywhere as good as that. More than a few of mine were actually "flying bowls", for one reason or another.....

I swear it was singing come sail away as it flew off the lathe.

So you have been visited by Father Murphy.  We are on the watch for the guy.  If you catch him, a slow painful torturous death is in order.  I am thinking complete hair follicle removal.  Takes 3-5 days, or so I was once told.:throbbinghead:

I had forgotten I had made a bowling type thing before it’s a ash try for my neighbor now. It started as an end grain hot plate thing. Then it somehow ended up with a base attached to it l and on the lathe. Not sure how it happened must be some magical turning fairy out there. Things seem to just appear on there all the time.

Well done sir!

Thank you I feel like I should have done more. But I’m happy with it now to figure out a finish. I’m thinking of trying a French polish on it.

Looks good. If I remember right my first bowl ended up in 3 or 4 pieces.

I keep hearing about exploding and or flying bowls. I’m wondering if I did something wrong now lol. But thank you i took it really easy on the bowl it has thick walls because i played it safe. They are probably 1/2 inch thick so there’s a lot of meat left on it. Well I think that’s a lot still new to turning.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
