Big ironwood natural edge bowl 1 ...

Today was a public holiday.
When I got into the workshop I felt very brave and mounted a large dry cracked ironwood bowl blank on the Stubby.

Before the hard work begins.

Turned the outside shape. That took a couple of hours!

This is the outside shape almost finished. A nice large spiggot turned so the blank can be reversed into the Axminster chuck.

The pith of the log is completely rotten and will result in large windows through the bowl.
I finished the day by reversing the blank and turning just beyond the depth of the wings.

Thanks to Gigi for taking the pics.
