Mini Maple Burl Bowl >pics

>Hello,

Well this is another turning exercise I did today, it’s a “Mini Maple Burl Bowl (say that 10 times fast!).

Anyway, a bit of scrap that I put on the lathe and tried to make a mini form with a curved radius with no foot…and about 2 inches across. I finished it with oil and wax. I found that I had to make really light cuts and move with the gouge to get the shape I was after, when it’s this small you move more in the shoulders than the feet I found.

Anyway, a fun little thing that wobbles and wiggles round on the table, I might try that Egg spinner and give this egg shell a ride!!

Thanks for viewing,

Take care,
Jim
