Here’s a 14” butternut bowl that I turned on the outboard side of a Laguna 1216 Midi lathe using a Nova G3 chuck with 130mm jaws. Turning a bowl this size on a midi lathe was a learning experience. :)

Here’s a video that details the process: https://youtu.be/rY4guCLZp_M

Very nice, I did a 11” bowl on my 12/18 King from maple that tested it!

Thanks, Andre. It’s definitely nice to “explore the boundaries” of our machinery. :)

That’s a beautiful warm looking bowl ready for Christmas Paul. Wish there were more pictures. The lathe looks good too!
