Trouble Maker Bowls II

 Well, here's that beast ready for turning. It's mounted
on the lathe after the glue has dried. Now the fun begins.
 I say fun because the bowl gauge makes a lot of noise
as it rounds out all of those corners.
 This is pretty much the final shape above. It semi-mimics
the shape of the "Trouble Maker Bowls".
 I will now get rid of the "Tail Stock" so I can turn the inside.
The tail stock is that gray piece on the right. It with the help
of a piece of wood inside the bowl, keep everything steady
while turning the outside. There will be no such help for
turning the inside of the bowl.
The inside turning is no less noisy than turning the
outside of the bowl. I take it slow and careful because
those corners can be unforgiving. A sharp tool and a
steady hand are required.
Here's a straight on shot. Next time I'll show
you the finished project.
