TD, a question

MikeinCapeMay
>Relative to Jared's question below. Since you seem to be the big bowl guy, how do you handle them in sizes over say 14"? Do you use a chuck and tailstock or strictly a faceplate for the entire operation? If you do chuck them and rough turn them, how do you true the tenon after the bowl dries? With smaller bowls I use a plywood compression to retrue. What about a bowl that's to large for the plywood compression chuck (or do I simply make a larger plywood chuck?), particularly someone without a vacuum chuck?

Thanks!
