    Hi Dan,

    One of the best handouts I ever received at a demo was from noted turner Todd Hoyer. It had a listing of all the ways to cut a blank for different results. I still use it to this day.

    I did a little google search and found it on the OVWG site in a pdf format. I think this will give you a ton of options.

    Best wishes,

    Dave

    Here is a proposed cut line for picture 3. The part behind the cut line could yield a large natural edge bowl with what I believe would be an interesting shape of rim.
