Small Bowl from Black Locust

This bowl was turned from a locust 4 x 4 given to me about 40 years ago by my brother Reid.

The blank was cut from a 4 x 4 and trimmed to get rid of the pith:


Started between centers and turned a tenon and reverse mounted it to cut out the inside:


All done: and buffed using the Beall Bowl Buffing system starting with

red tripoli and white diamond compound and finishing with carnauba wax: a three step process using three 2" buffing wheels mounted on an extension that

fits the threads on the headstock.

Multiple views showing various "features" revealed while turning.
