Three legged burr bowl

By Ian Davenport at Davenport's Handmade in Leeds, GB

This burr was mounted on the lathe by first creating a temporary base made from plywood, that was then screwed to the bottom of the burr with 3 screws, the bowl was then turned. After turning the bowl was sanded to 240 grit then a coat of Yorkshire grit followed by 3 coats of carnuba wax. After removing from the lathe, the temporary base was removed and the screw holes drilled out to 10mm diameter. Then 3 legs were turned from spalted sycamore and secured in the holes with superglue.
