Turning Archive 2006
>Being new to this bowl turning addiction, I have some basic questions that have come up in the last few lathe sessions.
1. Is the outside of the tree always the outside of the bowl? I Know this will maximize the size of the bowl, but does it always have to be this way? (actually thats 2 questions, BWTH)
2. When rough turning. Do you rough turn to final shape as close as possible?
3. Does the inside of a bowl usually to match the outside?
4. How long and what diameter do you make your tenons for chuck mounting.
I understand there are very few absolutes in this addiction. However your thoughts on these matters would be greatly appreciated.
Gotta run I hear a chainsaw outside.
Thanks for your input,
