ok bowl has made it off the lathe with no damage to it or me! tried my first live edge,was a little nervous so didn't push it on depth or wall thickness.used lots of ca glue to make sure the edge held.one tip when applying ca take the bowl off the chuck first,i didn't realize but some glue came out the void on the side on got on the chuck threads,couldn't get it to thread back on,after lots of debonder all is well-lol. this one is 3\1/4 h x 5-1/4 w made from mesquite.the wood is about 35-40 years old and hard as a rock.i thought the mrytle was tough this was worse.beautiful wood though. finished on the latle with mylands friction finish.all comment and tips are greatly appreciated.
