Bowl, Face Grain - with natural edge

Not surprisingly, a natural edged bowl starts with a log. Here is a fairly dry piece of cherry, complete with a radial split along which I plan to cut, leaving me with two half logs to choose from for bowls.

Bowl, Turn a Wooden

Each bowl begins as a section of a log, chain-sawn to rough shape and screwed onto the faceplate of my homemade lathe. Next they are turned using gouges and/or boring bars, and sanded smooth while still on the lathe.

Bowl, Turn a

While some say there are three stages to turning a bowl, for me there are four. Number one is getting the wood. If you go to the wood store it can be expensive in a hurry. While that may be okay for the occasional special piece, I like to start at the firewood pile.

Bowl, End Grain

Recently I was asked to explain how to turn a natural edged, end grain bowl. That is, a bowl with the grain running parallel to the lathe bed and the edge of the log left as the bowl edge. If you want a smooth edged bowl, just turn the piece round as you start. It will make sense as we go.

By Dick Gerard - As I tell my students, there are no right or wrong ways to turn. If you are happy with a particular tool making a particular cut or scrape, and if you are pleased with the end results, then that is the right inches way to do it.
