Yes, I cut several platters from a single log. I put and a 75 to 100 pound hunk and round it. If I made a bowl from it, the bowl would be 12 or 14 inches deep. I just part off 2 to 4 platters at a slight angle then make a bowl with the remainder. It's just like a parting tool I've done it with the tool rest, but don't recomend it. If the turning is large the forces can be high.
