« Part 32: Failure on the biggest bowl... Part 33 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 34: Safety Razor »

Second attempt at the Etimoe. Using the face plate was much better, but still a failure. After using the worm screw on the first attempt and switching to the face plate, I did not put the plate on the correct side. I realized the issue after turning it round.

I suppose I could have turned around again, but that would mean it would have several holes from the screws on the bottom through the bowl. I decided one big hole would be easier to fix then several small holes.

Getting past the funnel issue and driving toward completing the bowl. The unbalanced wood was just too much for me to bare. I got it round, as best I could, flipped it to carve the inside and had enough.

I think the wood has great potential at being stunning. Unfortunately, it will not be fantastic on his piece of work. I have decided not to close the hole and will use this bowl for spare change, keys, odds and ends, etc. I’m so disappointed in this project, I didn’t even bother to burn my logo into the bottom.

After editing and watching the video, I feel like throwing it back on the lathe to give it another turn. Maybe a future project. What do you think?

Here is this week’s video: Funnel Bowl Failure!
