Never realized I had a wood turning tool from the mid 80s. What a great discovery. Thanks Barry

I still have that one sitting on the shop floor, it's completely dry now, just need to get to it. Kinda warped and lumpy now, I will finish it off with my angle grinder and sander, no re-turning, going rustic. The unfinished bowl below is the one in the OP, the other pic is it's sister that I finished a while back. It came apart on the lathe, but I was almost finished, so I let it dry, and stitched it back together with some butterflies, the other will need a couple of butterflies too... bigbowl.JPG bigbowl1.jpg and epoxy, and did the final shaping and smoothing with the angle grinder and sander...
