I’ve now dried the timber in my last post, and it bowl is now back on the lathe.
I like to turn the machine on and see if there is any warping. There usually will be and I can either give the bowl and final cut with my gouges and then a series of sanding with a power sander.
I’ve sanded the bowl now as you can see, using a series of different grits (120, 240 320 and 400). We are at the stage of applying a melamine lacquer to add a gloss finish.
