Ken, thanks for the kind words.
Tim, again thanks for the encouragement. I did use a scraper in the inside. bowl scraper I believe. It's the one with a side grind too around the top and down the edge. It worked pretty well but I was scared when I was getting close to the portion that was "rotted" away. Hey 5 months, 5 years or 50 years I'll take all the advice I can get. Thanks for your input.
Jeff, Thank you too for the kind words. I will look into the Lacer hook tool. I have a Sorby Hollowing tool that I got with the lathe I purchased but I haven't used it all and haven't even seen one used so I was hesitant to stick it in there and screw something up bad. Like I said I was just messing around really and was thinking merely about spindle turning but when the face showed up I tried to do a little more. Gotta get the next chapter on faceplate turning read in my book!! I guess I could always chuck it back up later and take some more out when I feel a little more comfortable. Thanks again!
