Small wet turned bowls:

These are turned on the lathe using freshly cut timber. They distort as they slowly dry out. They are then put back on the lathe to skim their bottoms flat. I like the oval and triangular shapes that result.

These seven bowls were turned from Cherry.

Small dry turned bowls & boxes:

These are turned on the lathe whilst the wood is still wet, but left very thick. They are then put back on the lathe and turned down to their final size after they have dried and distorted. These bowls are perfectly round. Alternatively, bowls can be turned from dry wood.
