Gripping the Bowl
I was having problems finishing the underside of bowls because I could find no way to hold them securely after removing them from the face plate. After a bit of experimenting, I devised this wooden, four-jaw "chuck." The face and jaws are cork-covered, and engraved circles on the face help me quickly center the work. - Ron Sollinger, Wenatchee, Washington
