Sorry, I couln't resist that comment.:U

I haven't done it, but watched a video where the bloke started it between centres to rough the outer shape and cut a dowel on the bottom for a chuck. and to finish he then put a dummy piece of timber in the chuck then turned the end so that it was round and flat and just pressed the finished bowl up to it with a live center and then turned the dowel off.

I will try to find the video and let you know. There are probably many people out there that can explain it much better than me.

This isn't the video that I originally saw but shows the point.

Here's one way for consideration, although somewhat specialised: http://www.woodworkforums.com/showthread.php?t=75122

Also, the usual term for including the bark is "natural edge." Try Google [woodturning "natural edge" bowl]; global Google, not local to WWF. Whenever including the bark, it helps to dribble some CA on the bark and cambium (layer just under the bark) occasionally for reinforcement.

I usually do the first turning between centres with the top toward the headstock, turn the outside and a tenon or mortise. (Almost the same as Carl/weisyboy). Then mount in a chuck to do the inside. With NE's, the top can't be used in Cole jaws or Longworth or just about anything else. So a jam chuck is probably best to finish the bottom, with tailstock assist, leaving a tiny nubbin to be pared off with a chisel or Dremel.

Video loads too slow via dialup, so I can't compare with the above.

Try it, Toni. You'll like it.

I can't remember if you had a drill press Toni but this is another option if you do. Quickest and easiest method I've tried :shrug:
1. drill recess to suit your jaws with a forstner bit.
2. mount on chuck
3. and turn outside with tenon
4. reverse piece by mounting on the tenon to hollow bowl.

Either way works, Toni. It all depends on the shape of the log in the first place.

(Just thought I'd throw some confusion back in the mix... :D)
