    Cherry Barkless NE

    Here is a cherry NE without the bark that I got from John Hart. As I was turning it before I even got it down the bark flew. So I used india ink on the edge. It is 8 1/2" across the widest and 2" deep at the shallowest. Finished with Deft lacquer and buffed.

    Hi Bernie,

    It looks really nice! I like the contrast between the black ink and the smooth pale cherry grain.

    I see you've left the foot/tenon on and turned it as part of the bowl. It looks good that way, and I'm debating leaving my (now drying) elm bowl that way. I wonder if you'd share with us what steps you took to do the last (finishing) cuts? I'm wondering how you held the bowl while you finished the tenon?

    cheers eh?

    Cool! That inked edge looks as good as burned. Well done.

    John I used a P & N 3/8" conventional gouge for the final cuts which are very light cuts. I rarely have any problem with tear out using these gouges. I use this or the 1/2" P & N on the final cuts on all bowls after watching Mike Mahoney do it. He rarely had tear on any of his bowls. These bowl gouges when I say conventional don't have the fingernail, ellsworth or any swept back grind on them.

    When I finish the bottom of these NE bowls I use a donut chuck. When I mount the bowl in the chuck I put a piece of PVC adapter 2 1/2" to 4" with a piece of computer mouse pad glued on the big end for padding. I put this in the middle of the bowl and sit it on the side of the donut chuck that will mount on the spindle. Then I put the donut on over the bowl and screw it down just enough to hold it. I always make sure on the bottom I leave the mark made by the tailstock. Then mount it on the lathe and bring the tailstock up and put it in the mark it made during the initial turning. Once I have it square I tighten down the screws to hold the bowl solid and then remove the tailstock to finish the tenon. I usually take my skew and make a couple of circles on it for decoration. Hope this helps.
