Just adding, a "bowl" is what they call the pipe they smoke out of!

Anybody can become a woodworker, but only a Craftsmen can hide his mistakes!

It helps to stay in up with things when you are raising teenagers.

I have a 16, 18 and 23 year old so it's easier and a necessity.

Not just you, I had no idea! I kept thinking 4 x20 is 80 not 90 whats going on here.

Well I got the 60 Ulu Bowls turned. Still have to put walnut oil on them.



Got 10 of the other 30 roughed and drying. Here are a few of them. 2 Birch and one Spruce.



I still have a long way to go. I have decided to never take on an order this big again. It really takes the fun out of it.

Sounds like you are going to be busy. If turning 90 bowls in that period of time doesn't hone your turning skills, nothing will. good luck on the turnings.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Wow, that's alot of work and so far well done!

I am kinda disappointed that a fellow southerner linked to HuffPo though...

(HuffPo, LOL)

...ever notice how "I'm sorry" and "I apologize" mean the same thing, unless you are at a funeral..?

May the force be with you. I get frustrated when I have 3 or 4 projects backed up. You must need a full time sharpener to work for you.

Wow -- you're moving right along with these

Just curious, how did you mount the ulu blanks on the lathe? Did you turn the bottom as well as the inside?

Looks like great progress. How do you mount the square bowls. I'm assuming there is no tenon on the bottom, are they mounted to a faceplate?

Yes I use a faceplate to mount the square bowls. A piece of cork goes on the bottom that hides the screw holes.

90 bowls in 30 days? I used to be an oil painter. One year I had an order for 120 5X8 paintings of winter scenes (6 of 20 different scenes) to be used for Christmas cards/presents. I started in late September and finished by Thanksgiving. I haven't painted since.

Big orders like do take the fun out of turning. The money is nice but the deadline is not for me. I don't know if I would turn 90 bowls in a year. You "The Man". Congrats
