    Thanks for this. When I said it was uneven I was referring to the thickness at the corners. Itís not far out, only about 1mm or so.
    Itís just that I like to get things right if I can. I probably didnít square off the face well enough or it was wasnít square. Next time I do one and after my knuckles have healed, I will pay it more attention. I enjoyed the challenge doing this. Hope youíre feeling ok.

    Cheers,
    Frederick

    Still enjoying turning Frederick working on something at the moment well I say something 5 in fact all at the same time.

    Not being perfectly square or very slightly off centre when doing bowls like this can certainly upset the thickness in places. With turning there is always something to learn I certainly never stop. It is always being aware where your fingers and hands are when turning things like this and keep all parts of the body behind the tool rest is a must you want to try bowls like I have made where every part of the edge is like little razors flying past

    Thanks Derek.
    One day I will be producing bowls like this. Off now to practice some more after taking grandchildren to school.

    Cheers
