How A Bowl Is Made

First photo shows a block of wood which needs to be hand planed because of the square nature of this particular design. Then the foot side is turned first leaving a place for the chuck to grab the bottom when I turn it around. After the outside is shaped, sanded and polished, the piece is turned around and the inside is turned very carefully as the leafs are quite delicate (especially turning at 2000rpm's). Sand and polish then many coats of oil.
