Acacia bowl on a mini lathe
« on: February 20, 2021, 12:47:38 PM »
My wife bought me a chopping board for Xmas from Aldi's.

I chopped it up into squares and made some donut shaped bits.

Mounted them on a mandrel and made a box/lidded bowl/urn.

I gave it 8 or 9 coats of superglue, I am waiting for some micromesh pads to give it its final polish and get rid of the small ridges in the glue. 

Overall I am pleased - a 6" box with a 2" engineering chuck - it can be done.

Every penny a prisoner.
