Hello all! I just finished my first bowl!
I found your group just last week and joined. So here is my first post.
I joined my local AAW club in April and in August the president invited
members to join him on a one on one basis to turn some evening.
So I finally tried my hand at a bowl. His favorite material is Monkey
Puzzle so he mounted a 16" diameter piece on his lathe and I got lots
of practice while turning it to fit on my 12" lathe.
I finished turning it to 8.5" diameter 4" tall and a wall thickness of
3/16". It has 8 coats of gloss polyurethane.
Comments greatly welcomed.
