Nice bowl. How do you chuck a bowl that curve in at the top like that to finish the bottom?

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

boy, that's pretty. Nice job.

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

Sorry for the late reply. With bowls this small I use a screw chuck and turn and finish the outside. The foot is turning to match the chuck I use. Then on to the inside, Myrtle is not really very hard so it turns easily. The down side it needs to be dry as it tends to move around when green.
I get my Myrtle from Tasmania and its a very wet climate so green turning you need wet weather gear. It took about 3 months to dry from rough out.. well I kinda forgot about it
