I have a piece of black walnut that has pretty much dried out. I
picked it up the other day and it was really light weight - much more
than when I first got it.
As to the subject of the post, I wanna turn a natural edge bowl.
Looking over several of the fine websites I've found on this newsgroup
I have a fair idea how to proceed. One item that I know will require
care is the intermittent cuts that will be made as the 'wings' of the
bowl flash past. Advice I have read here will be followed- to whit:
put a contrasting piece of coloured paper behind so you can see a bit
better what is going on. My question relates to keeping the bark on.
My plan is to begin the shaping and once I get to the point where I
start the actual hollowing of the bowl to put some super glue on the
bark that I intend on keeping. This is in the hope that the glue will
both penetrate as well as helping the bark stay put. Comments?
