I assembled two identical bowls, but turned and finished only one, leaving the other one in the "rough".

I then split each of them into halves.

I then reassemble a finished half and a "rough" half.

This gives a good visual of before and after and also shows how much wood is removed during the turning process.

It was an easy decision to split the rough one into halves, but I questioned myself when I started to split the finished one into halves. Lol.

Wonderful sacrifice of beautiful work, great teaching tool. I could see that in my mind when I turn, but is really cool to see it for sure in hand. Thanks so much for doing it and sharing!!!

Charlie, I was delighted to read that you did this for demonstration purposes...for a brief moment I thought you may be losing it! That said, the overall result is an excellent visual of what takes place during the turning process. While an effective teaching tool, it is also a beautiful piece of woodworking artistry!

Imaginary conversation between Charlie and his clients

"Why yes I made those"

"How? Well, it's all a matter of timing exactly when I plunge the gouge into the workpiece. One has to be quick and precise. Very precise!"

Add to that a picture of the pile of lumber and then the pile of cut pieces to make a dramatic look at what it takes, and don't forget to add a 40 hour hour glass.
