Small Bowl

This small bowl made of Beech. Bowl is 5 1/2 inches round and 2 1/4 inches tall. textured band with a Sorby texture tool, dyed brown and outline with a V grove filled in with a black sharpie. sealed with Zinsser Bullseye sealcoat then 2 coats of lacquer.

I had to turn a bowl be i forgot how..LOL... I have a new student this Saturday with a mini jet and no chuck, so i had to tune up on glue blocking again and jam chucking. Hes taking bowl turning sessions.

The Sorby texture tool is like running a gear sprocket over the wood cutting little groves where you touch it. different angles will give you different cuts.

Robert the only ignorance is not asking the questions to helps us learn. ask away anytime, there are many turners willing to help.

Jeff,

Looks good Jeff,
I bought a texture tool at the last Hartville Hardware tool show. I haven't used it yet. It's next up on my list.

Nice bowl Jeff,Yup kinda looks like what a knurling tool on a metal lathe would make.The knurling tool I used had two wheels on it with slashes one way on the top wheel and slashes the other way on the second wheel to give it a crosshatched look!

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

Nice looking bowl. i would say that you haven't lost your touch for turning them. Great job. By the way, what is "jam chucking"?

Kenbo, Jam chucking is a technique used to finish bottoms of your turnings, bowl, plates, platter ect. below is a video using jam chucking to finish a bowl bottom.

Mike s this is the best close up I can do. you should be able to see the cuts from upper left to lower right. Thanks everyone for your comments.

Thanks Jeff, nice video. I think I'm going to have to look more into this. I've often wondered about how different things are done in woodturning and this video tells me that I have a lot to learn.
