I see that you have been cutting air again dennis, the grain in the wood and the finnish that you have got with the oil looks well nice.

What lathe do you use or what lathe did you use to turn it on mate. Les

Great looking bowl Dennis and that oil certainly gives it a great finish. Not heard of it before where did you get it from

hi Les and Derek

thank you for your comments. the lathe i use is a record cl1 with the lathe at the bowl turning attachement. the lathe was at about the 900 to 1200 speed.

Derek i got the oil from the harogat show from tony wilson if you look on the web you can get it from USA for about $15.it is made by organoil

Small shed may I suggest that you find a club near you and get one of the members to show you how. Also invest in the book by Kieth Rawley "Woodturning a foundation coarse" it is full of useful info. Learn how to sharpen your tools as there is nothing worse than trying to turn with blunt tools. And most important wear safety equipment

Another thing do not use your spindle gouge get a proper bowl gouge.

Hi Dennis,

sorry for not replying earlier, thank's for the advice. What sort of grinding set up do you use for

your gouges, which tool would you use for the inside of a bowl.

thank's again.

hi Small shed

i would use a bowl gouge for most of the turning on this type of bowl. as for the grind i would use a swept back grind on the wings as you can if you are steady enough use the tool as a shear scraper and get really fine cut. as for in the bowl part i would use two types of gouge. i would start of with a swept grind and take most of the waist timber away and then i would use a normal bowl grind as you can get a good finishing cut all the way round to the bottom of the bowl. if you are not getting a good cut then try using a round nose scraper freshly ground and using fine cuts from bottom of the bowl to the out side.

hope that this is of use.
