Turning Archive 2004
>Here is a bowl turned from Goncalo Alves. It is 10 1/4" by 2 1/4" and 1/4" thick. The wood was very dry, measuring 10% moisture. The foot was held in a dovetail recess 3 1/2" in diameter for the turning of the inside. The contour of the inside matches the contour of the outside. Only two tools used, a 3/4" bowl gouge and a 1/2" half round nose thick scraper. Sanded to 1200 and finished with EEE Polishing Compound and then with Shellawax finish.
