Ebony mini bowls

I turned an ebony bowl this morning to get ready for my demo at the mini makers club. It came out sweet. I may do one out of cherry before the meeting.

amazing ...

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

One of these days you should post a few pictures showing how you accomplish these small miracles.

It's nothing unusual other than a head maginifier, small tools and small tool rest. I use exactly the same turning techniques I would use with the big things. I used a 3/32 bowl gouge to do the outside and inside. I used a small skew as a scraper to clean up the shape of the lip which I didn't get perfect. I used the bowl gouge as a shear scraper to clean up the inside.

John, you do know one day the men in white will

That is simply breath taking!

It's not really a turning club. They have a national organization. They lady that started it here makes miniatures out of clay. I'm trying to introduce them to the turning side.

That's one of my large ones. This one is to scale, 1" to a foot. I turn much smaller. What you see in the photo is my micro tool rest. It has come in handy for these things.
