Bowl is looking good, lots of new ideas coming out of Boston
Stuart I have only one Talon chuck so I have to keep removing the piece from my #3 jaws after dressing the face of each ring. Then I put on the jumbo jaws to flatten and centre the next ring. When I glue on a ring I leave the added ring in the jumbo jaws then just use my live centre to push the bowl up against the ring. I rotate it for alignment and then tighten it up for 2-3 hours. Back in the very beginning when I make the waste block I ensure that I have a centre to work from. Hope that makes sense. Seems to work for me. That is the same procedure I used for the Eagle Bowl and my Dizzy vase.It just gets better and better. What chucking method are you using?
Another great idea Stuart. I have done a few books online through a company call BLURB. They do make a nice keepsake.Glenn, This follow along is great. Let me make a suggestion when completed. Make up a small booklet with the start to finish photos and descriptions. It doesn't have to be large but will be a nice addition to the bowl. I did this for the quilt hollow form I made for my nephew and his partner. The enjoyed seeing just what steps were taken as well as showing it to his partners Grandmother that made the original quilt. If yours is a gift it will be a good addition or if you are keeping it (I would) it will be nice to show just how you made it when the questions come up.
