    Opps

    One of those days. This was turning (no pun intended) out to be a reasonable bowl.
    Anyone want a wooden lamp shade?

    Hello Mark

    Good to hear from you. Hope the van problem has been sorted.

    I was thinking just that. I have a few ideas such as a leaf cast in clear resin. Will have to get the wood jaws out though, or more to the point
    make 'em.

    Cheers

    If you were a golfer you would be proud with that hole in one.

    As you have found out @Frederick when turning using a mortice that you can go through the bottom that is why it is very important to keep measuring Most of the time I use a tenon and then reverse chuck it and remove it.

    A shame really as it looks like it was going to be a great bowl As Mark said either fill it with resin after cleaning the hole or use a piece of wood in a contrasting colour this makes it look like it was intentional

    Hello Derek,

    Thanks Derek, always a pleasure to hear from you.

    I will put in another bottom. I have some ideas but will need some sort button jaws to hold the rim of the bowl. I do have a set of Axminster wood jaw plates but. as yet, not the ply to finish them. There is some 3/8ish MDF board in the workshop but not sure if that will be strong enough. Anyway, I will have to buy another set of jaw carriers. I will do all this next month.

    Cheers
    Frederick
