Today we cut our segmented glue ups on the band saw and attached one to the lathe face plate using a paper glue joint as explained in the video;

Strictly speaking you don't need a band saw to be a wood turner, we could have knocked the corners off the blanks with a hand saw,

I changed the batteries in my camera and forgot to reset the date.
We decided to use a paper glue joint because our little bowls are not very deep and screwing the face plate into the bowl would reduce its depth further.
The finish on my bowl is bees wax applied with my home made polissoir.
As David and I were talking the morning after making some saw dust in the shop it became obvious that a person with and a mini lathe, few chisels and wood can have a pretty good time and make a significant mess.
