« Part 1: Where it came from Part 2 of Turning Giant Pecan Bowl series Part 3: Rough turning outboard »

It weighed 225lbs, so we had to use the mini-skid steer to get it on the lathe. We had to mount it on the outboard side, because it was to wide to fit over the ways. My oldest daughter helped—she turned the spindle threads onto the faceplate when I got it in place.
