This piece of Rosewood was only 3” by approx 2”; I thought I would turn it into a bowl. This proved more difficult then I thought as I barely had enough room for my faceplate. Guess I should have measured it first, huh?

I tried to get a little fancier foot than I have before; just added concentric rings, I still need to buff it out though…

I usually turn the foot and outside form all at once then remove it form the faceplate and chuck the foot and hollow the inside.
