Woodturnings

Wood working that I find interesting. Mostly woodturning and specifically wood bowls and vessels. You will see a lot of my work too.

Any ideas on how to reverse chuck this bad boy?



I’d probably turn a tenon to fit the inside diameter of the opening. Pad it with a neoprene, mousepad or something else with a lot of friction (double sided tape might be an idea too). Then apply no more pressure with the tail stock and spin of the tenon carefully with a sharp gouge. 

Beautiful bowl by the way. I have a cherry blank waiting for Nakishima joinery too.

Managed to finish this torus shape on my second attempt. The first one I went too thin and it split. It is approximately 25cm diameter and 10cm high. #jacaranda #torus #woodturning #handmade
