ROUND BOWL WITH FOUR SIDES AND A LID.Tis the season in the north to start hiding out in the shop, first skiff of snow last night. I have tried to keep up with the postings on my phone and tablet. Great for seeing but not writing. I have spent allot of time this summer hiking etc and working on my property. Will post some of the things I did this summer later. This project has had top priority, my daughter had a request for me to send a bowl for an auction to raise money for a charity, so it had to be extra special. I had some experience with lathing a four sided bowl so though I would take it a step farther and do a matching lid and top it off with my first ever finial.The wood is Yellow Cedar. very fine grainI have a few construction pictures with some ideas that I will pass along. I lathed the bottom first but could not get a good dovetail for my chuck, I solved the problem by cutting a disc of wood and gluing it on.Then used the tail stock to apply gluing pressureThen lathed a great dovetail for the chuck. I like this idea as one can save more of the wood for the project. I would do it again on shallow projects. I simply sawed it off and finished the bottom normally.Turned it over, chuck held it securely and had not trouble lathing the top surfaceThe top was brought to a completion using a disc with a groove cut in it.The final step before putting the finish on was to cut vee groves for colored rings. Usually I spray the ring black, but I came up with another method, just use a black felt pen, one would not have to mask it off completely, tried it and it worked great. Should have thought of it before I started masking.To see how I put the color on I guess you will have to watch the video, It covers the complete building process.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLwcRCf3kI4The only advice I will give is, ALWAYS USE GLOVES WHEN DOING A PROJECT LIKE THIS. and be more careful, I got wacked.For a bonus I make some spurtles and included with the bowl for some extra cash.Thanks for looking, comments appreciated.
