"The finished honing tool " - can't find it in the shop so I had to make it. The cap of ebony added a noble touch. I like nice tools. The pointed honing stone will make sharpening easier.

Good morning! Here is a before and after shot of the turning process. It's always an amazing transformation from a roughly glued segmented pieces to a turned one. This one has been quite the journey. Thanks for the support during the process!

This is a great picture showing the anatomy of the perfect bowl. I'll point out a few things, feel free to add more in the comments below:
1) great flowing shape all the way to the foot, no harsh angles
2) the added step above the tenon does two thing - gives a flat surface so the chuck holds tight and it makes you create a better shape for the bowl. If you just have a tenon, the temptation is to turn to bowl directly into the tenon creating a squatty bowl. This stands the bowl up and gives it prominence.
3) the foot is concave so it sits flat, it's wide enough so it's stable, and the curve matches the curve of the bowl. .
What are some other things you notice or other tips you have for bowls?

After what seems like forever, this coral bowl is finally complete. Shellac finish on cherry. Had to improvise and use a toothbrush to apply he shellac in the crevices but that seemed to work great. #handcrafted #handmade #woodturning #woodturner #wood #woodworking #lathe #lovewhatyoudo #maker #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #vessel #vase #bowl #woodworker #woodturned #handcarved #shellac #oneway #woodart #studioart #handturned

More of the ash from a previous post . I really like this wood . It turns well and finishes well and the colour and grain is amazing . The tree came down 2 years ago and its been lying on the floor since then until I got some so I guess some of the colour is spalting. #woodenbowls #woodturning #woodturned #turnings #turned #figure #grain #ash #spalting #woodworking #dowoodworking #mywworg #woodporn #form #niceshape #hobby #woodartist #woodart

Winged 6" Cherry square bowl......or it was!! Now it is a office snack plate. I think it looks like a planet. When things go wrong make the best of your mistakes. I left a piece on the lathe with two cuts to go when I got distracted. I started turning it again two days later and realised a: the bowl had changed shape through warping and b: I no longer had enough wood to use without a high level of danger being involved. Exploding bowls are guaranteed to give you a massive adrenaline surge as pieces fly past at 1000rpm. You don't just get hit by the force of the speed from a flying bowl - it's still spinning too.....

#woodturned my first #homemadering for my wife out of #zebrawood and #maplewood for our anniversary. This one will go down as a "practice" one since I made it too thin and not big enough for her ring finger. #oops #ringphotosarehardtotake
