Negus - Treen Turning

I believe the bowl was turned first then the wings (handles) would be carved and shaped by hand and then the straining holes drilled all by hand. At least that is how I imagine I would tackle it.

Matt, while I agree that a treen could be made on the pole lathe, as shown in the video; the treen referred to in the OP's attachment could not be turned on a horizontal pole lathe as the handles are flat and square-shaped, not round.

Yes, that was turned on a pole lathe. The wings are turned as you would any winged bowl and the area in between the wings are turned using short strokes on the same lathe.

I'm not a turner but this is an interesting project to explore and learn a bit. I saw a couple of videos about turning a "winged" bowl.

"has excellent pole lathe markings."

Looking at the pictures magnified in a photo editor, especially the bottom views, I'd have to agree that the wings were done at the same time as the rest of the bowl and are not separate attachments.
