|While some say there are three stages to turning a bowl, for me there are four. Number one is getting the wood supply. Most of the time this is green wood because wood thick enough to make a bowl is too expensive to dry. If you go to the wood store it can be expensive in a hurry. While that may be okay for the occasional special piece, I like to start with green wood at the firewood pile.|
|From this you end up with a bowl blank|
|that needs to be rough turned, waxed and dried.|
|before the final turning, sanding and finishing.|
|More on the wood turner's power sanding procedure for woodturning bowls can be found here in a picture and video format .|
If you make one please let me know how it turned out.
