Step 4: Decorative

This next step is more decorative than anything else, though it will add some balance to the piece and all visible surfaces will have been turned.  The jug must be turned around so you can work the other side.  You can screw the faceplate to the inside wall of the jug, but only if it is thick enough that the screws don't hit your chisel as it digs into the piece.  A better option is to forgo the faceplate and use both centers.  
hey i like the idea of the canteen, tho i have some questions, 1 is your face plate a screw in type? and do you glue on the back side also <br>(the side used for face plate) thanks Traveler
I screwed the part to the face plate for this project, though that is not the only way to mount it. And I didn't bowl-out the back side, I just turned it to be round.
I have envy of the powerMatic lathe my friend Very Very Nice!
Looks like a nice potion bottle. Nice way to hollow a wood! Never thought of that.
