Pro External Demo by Tony Jones

Tonight we were treated to a demonstration of how to turn a winged bowl in sycamore and the problems that you might encounter. First he marked the bowl out and explained how he proposed to create the spigot and the tools he uses. He then turned the bottom half of the bowl.

After the break he showed us how to turn the inside of the bowl to match the diameter of the lower half of the bowl before completing the wing and finally the bowl interior. Throughout the process Tony was explaining what he was doing and the problems you might come across on the way.

Finally he displayed other bowls that he had made from a variety of woods and some of the tools he uses to produce them.

A big thank you to Tony from the club for the informative way he dealt with the various questions that arose – and for dealing with the problems thrown up by the faulty video!
