Thread: Clock Bowl

  1. #1

    Clock Bowl

    Found a wooden Clock in a thrift shop. Most of the numbers were missing and the little moter to run it. As soon as I saw it I wanted to make a bowl out of it. Big enough for 2 bowls about 6 inchs round. I did not get any curl out of this just dust. Dryist piece of wood I ever turned. Nice figure in the wood. What the heck for 50 cents was still a lot of fun.

    That might explain all the dust.
