Update on Bowl Saver

Have been practicing with the bowl saver on some nice sweetgum. First,
there are a lot less shavings, since there is only the outside shaping
of the blank and the hollowing out of the smallest bowl. Second, it is
faster--even if you don't need the smaller bowls. Just throw the inside
bowl away and you are done. In three days it has probably paid for
itself providing I can sell the smaller bowls, and sweetgum bowls sell well.

Checked yesterday. 10-12" size of larger bowl--From slice off the log to two bowls roughed out from it took 45 minutes. That's fast for me.

500-600 rpm. I haven't gotten confident enough to go any faster. It still surprises me if I go too far and the inner bowl just drops down and bumbles around inside the larger bowl. I fully expect it to go into near earth orbit. Pleasant surprise.
