a couple of weeks ago I decided that I would turn my boss a bowl just to say thank you. He allowed me to build a new bathroom vamity using the work shop. Not only that but he gave me a heck of a deal on the cost. Pictures of the vanity will be coming.

the bowl in popler measring about 5 in across and 1 1/2 deep. I used me wifeys wood burner to burn in the logo for our cabinet shop. He really liked it.

As of yet I do not have a chuck for my lathe so what I do is glue a sacrafical blank to the bottom that I can screw my face plate to. I never seem to be able to exactly center it but it works.

I have a bunch of blanks of popler that I thought maybe I can turn and sell. small bowl this size from popler what do you think $15 bucks?
