Here’s a Birch bowl that I recently turned. It features an inner rim and a corresponding sloped side to accent.

It is approximately 6.5″ in diameter and 1 3/4″ tall. It is finished with EEE Cream and Shellawax.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

I like the double rim affect. I also am wondering how you cut the rings on teh center of the bottom?

Curious also – How did you spin the underside to get the rings?

Bob, for the finish I sanded this to 600 grit and then used the EEE Cream which, I believe, is best described as a rubbing compound. This creates a finer finish. Then I use the Shellawax which is a friction type finish. It shines up nicely.

In regards to the bottom, I use the Oneway Jumbo Jaws to reverse chuck and then use the toe of the skew chisel held on it’s side to score the rings. Then I clean them up with a bit of fine sandpaper.

Nice looking bowl Ted. The double rim reminds me of turnings on a double axis. Beautiful finish as well. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job Ted…. Are you finding the Shellawax to be durable?

Thanks all!

Chris, although the Shellawax hardens it is a wax of sorts. I don’t use it for anything that will be handled a lot, just for things that will be more or less displayed.
