1st bowl using new chuck

well i have alot to learn
see the hole in the middle where i drilled to deep for the screw chuck?
i had this piece of cherry left over so i figured i would have some fun turning it
i made the tenon on the back and it worked but i couldnt get it totally straight<it wobbled some
is it just my cheap craftsman lathe?
i am having fun turning these bracelets though

Nice work, The bowl turned out nice. What I do is drill a shallow hole in the bottom then mount the blank on the chuck. I have made the mistake of drilling too deep and then turning the inside too deep and having a small hole in the middle. Once I have inside and outside finished then I mount it to the flat jaws and turn the bottom to get rid of the recess in the bottom. Hope this helps.

Assumption is the mother of all foul -ups

Robert,On a small bowl like that I would use the faceplate,screw on a piece of wood and turn it to about a 3 inch round.Then put titebond II on the disk,a piece of paper grocery bag then more titebond then clamp the bottom of what will be your bowl.Let set over night then turn it.When your done just put the edge of your putty knife on the seam and tap with a hammer.It really works cool when ya get the hang of doing it this way.Lucas told me how to do it,so the credit is his.Itchy I like the braclet.

***For the record*** Ive made hundreds of guitar bodies,never put one together and cant play a note.
