A cock up


Today I turned my second bowl which started as a cock up, I was axing out a blank ready for when Sean finished his bowl but I started chamfering both sides for some reason I thought I could still use it but Sean said to leave it but I couldn't through it away. So I came up with this ambitious idea to make this shape bowl that is under cut in the inside. The finish on it is fairly smooth but could be better. The thickness is the same and shape is nice I though I would take photo soon before it warps.

  4. Good on ya Dan, I'm glad you didn't give up on what turned out to be a successful piece. I have been blog hopping this morning and asking myself if it is only as we get older we appreciate the quality of craftsman and their work, but I'm glad that you have proved me wrong.
    I look forward to watching your progress, and you have another avid blog reader :)
