These are beautiful Dan, I especially like the asymmetrical ones. Great work.

Nice Dan. I need to learn how to do that now that I got an old lathe working.

Dan

You did a good job at making the bowls.

I had a good friend Lyle Jamieson tell me that if you want to make a good bowl to make a lot of them before going on to something else. Also to look on the web or in your kitchen to see how pleasing looking bowls look and try to make them.

Good luck and hope to see more.

Nice turnings, Dan! I especially like the footed one. Is it turned as a spindle? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, everyone. Candy, the “bowl on a stick” is turned in three sections tenoned together, a foot plate, spindle, and bowl.

It’s interesting to finish a green chunk inside and out, apply oil and wait for it to dry slowly through the finish. This picture was taken just an hour after the two persimmon bowls came off the lathe. It’s fun to watch the daily movement into an oval shape like the first one. These will be yarn bowls with a yarn exit hook carved into the side where the yarn string is separated from the ball in the bowl as knitting is done. Keeps the ball from rolling down the street.
