    To make bowls you could use a small lathe and chuck, if you look in the wood turning zone of the forum you may find there is a thread that shows you how to, or ask a question. You could cave them with a grinder and caving and sanding disks, or by hand, using chisels.

    Just wondering where did you get them all I have been looking but cant find to much.

    Woodslab you #$%^&!

    I have a small stash of Burls, but you lucky individual have a motsa.

    I have carved by hand and grinder and turned burl bowls. It can be damn hard work whichever way you go. If some of the larger burls are still green, I would rough the bowl now. Allow to dry, then finish . . . it is easier on the tools and your sanity

    Sorry for the slight threadjack but in the second video, did he apply the wax whilst sanding? I haven't seen it done that way and am interested to know more. What type of wax would you use for that?
    It's only a mistake if you don't learn from it.
