PowerLathe Turned Bowls
My power lathe turned bowls are made in a similar way as my pole lathe ones, ie they are turned from either green or part seasoned half logs, they dont have the distinctive tool marks that you get by using the pole lathe, but only sharp tools are used and no sandpaper, all modern chucking mounts are removed. They are left to dry for a few weeks and they warp and twist due to the shrinkage that occurs during this natural process. This makes each one very individual with its own character and they look the part either in the living history camp or on your breakfast table.
Prices start from £8 for a 4in bowl.
Approx 5 inches x 3.5 inches
