Ongoing Project (05)

Turning Air and Manitoba Maple.

For a finish I use a mix of about 30% thinner to 70% varnish. This type of formulation is often marketted as Danish Oil or tung oil. Manitoba Maple Wing Bowl Image
I just pad it on front back and all sides with a scrap of cloth, let it rest for about 5 minutes and then wipe it off using paper towels. Manitoba Maple Wing Bowl Image
Using a 3/16" parting tool I cut in on the base leaving a conecting tenon between 3/4" and 1" thick. Manitoba Maple Wing Bowl Image
The tenon is cut with a saw and the bottom is ready for sanding. Manitoba Maple Wing Bowl Image
You could chisel away some of the remaining tenon but I find it just as easy and fast to sand one of these. Manitoba Maple Wing Bowl Image
So I mount the sanding disk to the lathe and increase the speed to 1200. Manitoba Maple Wing Bowl Image
