Had a go at inserting a piece of copper into a beech bowl. I am pleased with the outcome

Bowl is 10" X 2 1/2"

hi Derek

I like the out come of this bowl and you have got me thinking now. as I have got a half marathon meddle from the Falklands way back when I completed the run in 1987. I have been thinking of doing this as a bit of a keep sake but unsure what it would look like but now you have convinced me to go and do it so watch this space for the outcome.

nice bowl derek looks very good and thankyou very much for the bandsaw boxes they are ideal and are added to the list for christmas

the bowl takes me back to a competition for novices in our club in 2010 the theme was a bowl which was to have

a mettalic element so with it being world cup year i entered a bowl with a polished 1966 penny in the bottom

i won but the judge an american pro turner and club member asked if there was any significance in the date

he reinforced my opinion of yanks

Thank you both.

Look forward to seeing your Dennis

The original idea was to have the disc plain and highly polished spent an hour polishing got it like a mirror went to glue it in had a piece of wood to put between the tail stock and the disc with a protective surface so that it held it flush while it set.

I then picked up the wrong piece of wood put it in place done the tailstock up to discover that the piece I had picked up had a little nipple in the middle.

Long story short put a dent right in the middle of the disk so went for the hammered effect. Glad I did as it looks better.

Glad the PDF's are OK will soon see some boxes from you, I plan to glue up some blocks tomorrow to make some more as I think all the ones I have made will have new homes
