>I had to wait for a curved tool rest that would be tall enough before I could start re-turning the large magnolia bowl (16"".
I trued the tenon and chucked up the bowl. Then I trued the rim and marked it as you suggested. The distance between the pencil marks is 15/16. I started with a wall thickness of 5/4.
Rather than take the bowl all the way down today, I took the wall thickness to 15/16. I am going to give the wood some time to adjust and finish turning it tomorrow.
I was very pleased with the minimum distortion of this bowl. This magnolia has widely spaced growth rings; I would have expected more movement.
