Default A suggestion from Maurice

After commenting nicely about my recent candy dish, he suggested that I try to make one with 3/8" walls, well this afternoon I managed to beat that with 7mm walls (about 9/32), sure it took 3 1/2 hours compared with only two for the first one which will now go on the list of things to give as presents! The Ultrashine is a very fast finish to apply whilst spinning as is the Shellawax final finish.

Harry, does it get any better than this? I don't think so! You are improving so fast I don't think I ever have a chance of catching up. I have a few other projects I need to finish, and then I want to try a bowl, if only the weather would warm up! But I guess you are not having that problem right now, LOL. The bowl looks fantastic! Better put some candies or salad in there before Dave sees it

Harry my friend you have outdid yourself. That is a beautiful looking bowl. I like the simple form and finish. Well done.

Oh and Harry I do have one suggestion. I would use some shorter screws and reverse them to that the wing nuts are on the headstock side of your donut chuck and not on the turning side. Cuts down on the pucker factor a whole bunch. Just a thought.

Nice job Harry

Now you need to make a wooden spoon so you can eat your chicken soup from the new bowl.. I think that's how they did in it the 1400's..all things come to a full circle they say.

I have a question for you ?, why do you have the screws sticking out of the front side of your jig, looks like a great way to remove your fingers when using it for the sanding job,why not on the back side of the jig ? that looks very hairy (harry) to use..they do sale shorter screws you know

Great job, Harry! You need to sign, date and number those bowls. It could mean a lot to future generations.

Harry, these bowls are superb!
I agree with the others that you should sign, date, type of wood and number them.
It also makes them authentic so that when you become famous and they sell for thousands (tongue in cheek here!) folks will recognize them. It also helps you to remember who you gave them to.
Now, try a smaller bowl, say 6 or 7 inches diameter (152mm) and make the walls 3/16 inches thick.
there was a famous guy Bob Stockdale, passed away several years ago, in the states who did this and got $3000.00 a pop at auction.

Harry,
Your diverse talents never cease to amaze and delight.
Very nice bowls.
I too, am concerned about the wing nut placement.
