    More Square Bowls

    Doing more of these to get my mojo back and I want to do many so I have my technique and my methods down to show how I do them.




    About 5" square Maple




    3-1/2" square Sakura with inclusions.


    Finished with just a coat of sanding sealer for now, I'll be putting some lacquer on at some point.


    Cheers!

    Perfect for a small sushi snack!
    We love ours. People are always curious about how it was done.

    Nice looking. Must be scary to turn! The Sakura looks a lot like the piece of Camphor wood I have.

    Years ago, when I got my "real" lathe, I heard the term "square bowl" and figured it was something like this.



    Don't look at the tear out or thick sides... I was just learning to use the new tools! But this is what I think of as a square bowl.

    Yep, I did some like that a while back Charlie, they are fun, but no one seemed to like them, they really like the basic ones I do

    And if it will hold Ice cream or M&Ms its a bowl!

    I did not get any turning done today, I had to work, several events going on so we were busy, but I did make the time to dig through my scrap bin and pull out some wood to glue up some blanks for turning toothpick holders. Also quite a few more square bowls.

    That should give me lots of practice.
