I don't recommend you try this at home. But I found out that if you put a rough, out of balance, blank in the lathe, turn the lathe on, then use a hand power planer, to make the piece perfectly round in about 5 seconds. Loads of fun.

That wouldn’t work in my case. My lathe is small and will only turn 12.5” over center and I am turning 12” bowls.

I'm very fortunate in that I have a friend, a professional turner, who lives close by and was introduced to me by a member who lives in England! he has kept me supplied with bowl blanks plus lots more for FREE, all that I have given him in return besides friendship is lessons on the finer points of hand held plunge routing.
