Back to Back Bowl Turning with Dan Douthart - part 2 (8/4/2012)
In this class Dan Douthart resumes turning the bowl he roughed out in the previous class. He began with a bowl that had been roughed out of green wood and had been shop drying until stable. He explained that the piece had lost considerable weight as the moisture had evaporated slowly. No major cracks had developed but the piece had warped some and the parts that were previously round were decidedly egg shaped. He began with showing how to re chuck the bowl in its current form to true up the tenon on the bottom. Once he could re-grip the tenon and turn the piece round again, he used a number of tools ground to "ride the bevel" down into the bowl for final finishing. The last machining operation involved mounting the piece in a bowl chuck to turn off the tenon and complete sanding and finishing. He ended by explaining how he applies finish and buffs the piece inside and out.
