bowl from that punky ash

Thanks for all the advice on how to deal with the piece of punky ash in THIS THREAD -- with the larger diameter jaws on the chuck, the tenon held. It did make it much harder to clean up the bottom of the bowl after hollowing and sanding the sides and innards, looks like I have to invest in a new chisel with a bend.

Anyway -- here's the bowl after 3 coats of salad bowl oil. It's about 8" inner diameter.

Pen..... woodburner?????

Nice touch

Turned out really nice. I'm sure they will like it a lot.

What size tenon did you use? I normally use a recess on larger items. With my 2” jaws and one inch of wood surrounding the recess, there is three times the wood holding with a recess as with a tenon.

Thanks.

The first couple I signed this way using a regular Weller 15W soldering iron, all I did was grind the tip to remove all the tinning and make a sharp point first.

Later I scored a small wood-burning kit at a yard sale. It looks and performs exactly like the soldering iron, but has a variety of tips ... of which I only use the sharp pointy one.

Thanks.

I think the tenon was a little over 4". I thought about using a recess, but the way the original tenon simply compressed and broke away as I tightened the smaller jaws around it made me concerned that might not be a wise move. (I didn't want to accidentally split the bowl open if there was too much pressure from inside a recess.)

Nice job, Duncan!

They will love it, guaranteed!

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

Thats a grand bowl , a good practical shape and size , and a fine finish
cheers


I use tenons for all my bowls and platters . (some are glue ons) .
That gives me the choice of leaving it on the finished piece , shaping it , reducing it in size , or taking it off altogether , depending on how I feel about the overall look .

Thanks John. I learned that one should sign bowls from posts by Mike Hawkins (firehawkmph). I'm still working on the "how to make it look elegant"
