I turned an 8”x2 1/20 torus bowl from a piece of lightly splayed Maple. The stand is Brazilian Mahogany. Finished sanding to 600 g and with 2 coats of Minwax Teak oil and 4 coats water born Varathain. This was a fun project. I got the inspiration from an Italian guy on YouTube

I’m not sure what a torus bowl is or how it is used, but there is no denying what a beautiful and well done turning this is.

Hey Mark. go to Youtube , search for torus bowl. the guys name is Yuval Lahav.
Stefang. I wasn’t to sure what a torus was so I googled it. I got a huge complicated answer. Best guess…it’s a donut.

Did you reverse yours the same as in the video? I’m wanting to try this, but thought maybe turning one side, then mounting on a flat board with hot glue would make finish turning easy, as I’d rather not sand a ridge off by hand (my hot melt glue scrapes off fairly easily).
