Thread: Remounting Rough Turned Bowl So I Can Turn Outside Without Tailstock

    I use my Cole jaws. If the rim of the bowl is too warped to sit flat then I use my electric plane or homemade disc sander to remove the high spots so it'll sit flat. I often will only use four of the blocks (vs all 8) to hold the bowl if it's too oblong. Since I'm just trying to make the tenon or mortise round it works without problems for me. In the future, now that I've remade my disc sander I'll use that to flatten the rim every time.

    I agree...been using the new sharpies with good success. I just ordered the Faber pens to do a comparison

    While you’ve got it by the recess, true up the face/rim at the same time. I usually turn down both the inside and outside of the rim - about 1/4” down is plenty to see how much wall thickness is left to work with when its round...
