Default I finished it today

In the new year I'll get back to routing projects but at the moment I'm brushing up on turning and finished this tapered fruit bowl today. In spite of recently modifying my doughnut chuck to accommodate this 9 3/16" bowl it still wasn't any good so I borrowed the Cole chuck as shown from a friend. For my next project I intend to attempt to make a four slot Longworth chuck.
The pdf shows all the stages in it's making.

That is really cool, Harry. Give us the scoop. Did you start with green lumber? Have to let it rest between shaping the outside/inside? Finish? What wood?

I see that you have not lost your touch, Harry.

How did the shoulder stand up to the workout.

Nice work Harry . That's quite a large diameter and I'm trying to visualize that puppy on a lathe.

Update : I just realized you posted how it was done . That's awesome ! I love the wood shavings left over lol

Very nice. Thanks for sharing the photos.

I think I got to use a lathe in junior high school...circa 1961. At least I think I did.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Harry, that is one fine piece of work. You might join the American Association of Woodturners at American Association of Woodturners and display the bowl and the sequence photos. Thanks for sharing that work of art!
Who makes the tool you show in the photo of turning the inside of the bowl? Can I get any info on it? Is it sold in the USA?

This is the tool: Hand Held Sanding Handles - VERMEC, YOUR WOOD WORKING & ENGINEERING SUPPLIER.

The sanding pads are velcro backed so it's very quick to change. When the tool is held against against a rotating object IT starts to rotate according to the lathe speed and it does not leave scratch marks.
