Hi I just turned a piece of maple crotch into a small plate. This is the first time using Jerrys chuck plate and steady rest, they work great never removed a tenon as cleanly. Also with the chick plate I no longer need to make a flat spot form a face plate. I have posted some pics of the process Thanks Mike

Not to shabby at all, Mike. The next one you do, decorate it with a couple beads…........ Jerry (in Tucson)

Looks like since you found the solution to making better turnings, no one’s interested….... You need to go back to having issues….......... Jerry (in Tucson)

Hey Mike
I remember some of your earlier turnings and you’ve come a long way! You should be really proud of that.

As for your think bottoms (giggity). Have you tried running one hand down the inside and one down the outside at the same time. If your hands start to separate the bowl is to thick there. Make another shaping pass on just that part. You’ll get a better feel for it over time.
If you want a more technical and expensive solution. There is a digital caliper that measured the wall thickness. It works pretty well

Thanks for the encouragement thanks for the tip. That will help. I am a no thech kinda guy so technical isn’t the best. I have a pair of bowl caliper, the non digital kind. They are a great help when I remember to use them. I’ll try the hand method when I go to turn thanks Mike
