    Does the grip mat manage to stop the inside from being marked or does it still need "padding" with kitchen towel?

    You use a piece of MDF bigger than the bowl so that only the rim is touching. You shouldnít get any marking.
    There are some pictures of the process near the bottom of the page. Heís not using any grip Matt though, itís a personal choice!

    If you want to try it make the MDF (or Ply) disc the biggest your Lathe can swing.

    I use a homemade Doughnut Chuck though as you donít need the tailstock, but thatís another story.

    Thanks for that Bill I think I will most definitely give that a try but I will cover it all with a grip mat.

    In fairness to @Neil Lawton he did show me a way but it meant cupping the inside of the bowl and I don't yet have enough failed bowl attempts to make any, but I really do like the idea you have shown.

    That's a great little bowl for your first solo effort Gary.
    The wood is Whitebeam which is usually quite plain so it would be hard to identify. The blanks I gave you should all have the name on in pencil unless it's an obvious one.
    The router mat on a disc works fine on flat rimmed bowls and I have a couple that use a faceplate ring so you don't have to take the chuck off, and I usually put a sheet of kitchen towel over the top of the bowl before centring to avoid the chance of marking it. That method doesn't work if you are doing a natural edge bowl though which is why we use the jam chucking method on courses.
    If you do make it back up here again I'll let you have some Accoya bits to make chucks with.
    I can't decide whether to be a good example, or a horrible warning!

    There are several ways to support a natural edge bowl for foot removal.

    Or

    Rubber balls in a range if sizes can come in handy for things like goblets as well.
