This was made with a DIY chuck for eccentrically tilted turning. The center of the bowl was removed with normal turning. Then the 8 boundaries were carved out with the eccentric chuck. All turning was done with green wood and dried with a microwave oven.

What is the wood type and dimensions?

Pretty dang cool BT.
Would love to see a process video. It turned out great! What speed were you turning the eccentric cuts at?
Thanks for sharing.

I am not sure with the wood type. It is a crotch area. The diameter is about 6 inches. I may try a bigger item with the asymmetrical chuck but it would be more challenging.

Thank you for the complement. I hope to demonstrate with a video when I get a camera on my lathe. I turned this piece at about 700 rpm. When balanced well, you can turn at a higher speed. Another dish I could rotate up to 1,100 rpm before the lathe vibrated.

Thanks! This kind of turning needs some skill because the gouge cuts the wood and spends some time in the air. Turning natural edge bowls would be a helpful step before this eccentric turning.

Yes, it is eccentric turning but not conventional method. The bowl was tilted in addition.

Thank you for watching my project. As I am using this chuck for the first time, it is fun to see how the outcome looks like.
