    Hollow Form?

    I have always heard two things on how to turn a bowl correctly. #1 leave no signs of how you attached it to the lathe. #2 Finish the inside just as good as the outside. How do you sand and finish a hollow form where you cant get to it? Thanks, Jeff

    What does everyone do with small holes in a bowl/box that was turned from a burl? Do you leave it? Fill it with epoxy? Or is each turning different so there is no right or wrong? Thanks. Jeff

    Hi everyone

    Hi, I'm knew to the site. I was a auto tech for 20 years, but now I'm disabled. I have been doing woodworking on and off for years. My interest seems to be leaning toward turning at this time. I love the segmented bowls. Looking forward to seeing everyone's work! Jeff
