Osage Orange Bowl
Here are a few pictures of the latest bowl I am working on. It is a work in progress.
Here is the roughed out shape on mounted on the lathe.
After roughing a bit.
A bit more.
A little more.
More. Getting to see more of the grain.
Sanded– Recess in bottom for the chuck when I turn it around and work on the inside. This is sanded to 220. I’ll hit it up to 13000 later.
Side note–as I was taking the faceplate off to turn it around-the head stripped off 6 screws. Still working on trying to determine a way to remove them. Any ideas would be helpful. I just bagged the piece to it won’t dry out and crack tonight.
I’ll try to finish it tomorrow.
