Project Information

I've had a chance to get back to the lathe and practice turning bowls. My set of cole jaws was not big enough to reverse chuck a few and I made the larger set after watching Alan Stratton's video on his YouTube channel As the Wood Turns. The directions were very easy and I only spent about 5.00 on the screws and t-nuts, and tubing. I had the plywood left over from other projects. Probably 4 hours invested in the whole process.

I've experimented with danish oil, beeswax and Yorkshire Grit/Hampshire Sheen for the finishes. I think beeswax is my favorite.

Nice looking bowls. Beautiful finish. I'm just learning turning, and I made my first little bowl the other day. Quite enjoyable to make. I need a good bowl chuck solution too. I was thinking about a longworth chuck. Or maybe a homemade donut chuck. Still thinking….
