This bowl is made from a specially selected piece of sapele which was mounted on the lathe and the outside turned to shape.
The inside was turned almost to the finished shape when the mounting tenon sheared so the bowl came adrift from the lathe.
It was not possible to remount on the lathe to finish the inside so it was finished free hand using a dremel so it has a couple of imperfections.
After sanding the bowl was coated with tung oil both inside and out making it safe for food use.
Please note that while this bowl has a couple of imperfections on the inside it is perfectly useable.
