Turning Archive 2005
George Fitzpatrick - Springfield MA
>Beginning turner here. When I am turning a bowl, typically, I find that I get tear out in what I think are the end grain points of the bowl, both inside and outside. I end up sanding...and sanding....and sanding.... Is this normal, or is my technique lacking? Right now I am working on a maple bowl, and it was quite noticable.
Once finished, I will try to post a pic.
Want to get a decent finishing technique down for the turning exchange.
