Plywood Bowl (Chuckless)

About: I like to make stuff. All kinds of stuff! ZepLabs HandCrafted Nikos Zepidis tonginos@gmail.com

Last week I made a 4-jaw chuck for the lathe. But this week I ll just make a bowl. Chuckless! It's partly because I am not very happy with how well the chuck holds ( I need to remake the jaws out of some harder material) , but mainly its to prove a point. You don't need fancy tools, not even too many homemade ones to make something nice! And of course its about having fun on the lathe..

You'll need:

-A small piece of plywood (20 mm in my case)

-Some wood glue

-A lathe of any kind (You can check my homemade one here,and go make one for under 50 bucks..)

-A cheap plain chisel

-And one or two hours of your precious time!

Let's see the video and go make one for yourself!

And if you like what you see, feel free to subscribe either here or in my youtube channel.

More coming up..

Thanks for wathcing. Helps a lot..
