    No, the central bowl was turned as normal facing the tailstock without tailstock support.

    Hold it!

    Alright Chas, You gotta 'splain how ya dun it? Please?

    (Curious minds want to know. And Larry too)

    I don't think a vacuum mount would have worked, because of the bark.

    Very nice looking, for sure.

    Aloha, Tony

    Aha! You've got some of that much sought-after magnetic European Cherry wood.

    Seriously, I'm very curious how you pulled this off. The end result is great.

    Agreed. A really neat curiosity.
    I'm guessing glue with paper and mebbe a cusion pad that was heat removed after the turning.
    Or, the bark was added after the fact.

    My guess is screw or held in some way by the three ears then cut off after turning. At any rate Chas its some nice work your are becoming quit the master there.
