Sycamore Cluster Burl, with ends rounded on my bandsaw, is mounted on my Stubby S750 Lathe. View is from the headstock, this will be the top of the bowl. Rough dimension is 20 1/4" wide x 11" high. View from the Tail Stock. This will be the bottom of the bowl and will require turning a tenon for mounting on a 6" faceplate. Outside turned to final shape. Tenon turned for mounting faceplate.
Front view from headstock. Bowl reverse mounted using a 6" faceplate. To utilize more of the turning block, a core has been removed using a McNaughton Corer. This core will also be cored for a smaller bowl.
Inside removed and turned to final dimension of 17 1/4" x 7 1/2". View showing bowl turned from the largest core. Final dimension is 11 3/4" x 5 1/4". View showing the 2 bowls turned from the cores. Without coring, there would have been wood chips and sawdust instead of 2 additional nice bowls. Largest bowl from core measures 11 3/4" x 5 1/4"", small bowl measures 7 7/8" x 2 3/4".
